The Board's comprehensive annual financial report has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the highest standards including demonstrating a constructive "spirit of full disclosure" to clearly communicate its financial story.

“This award is a fitting tribute to Ruby Pittman and the Finance team,” said Dr. Todd LoFrese, Assistant Superintendent for Support Services. “They work very hard to assure both accuracy and transparency in reporting, and we are grateful for their diligence.”

Jill Wright - Data Manager of the Year

Jill Wright of Ephesus Elementary has been named Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Data Manager of the Year.

Jill started as Ephesus Elementary School’s Data Manager just before the start of the 2013-2014 school year. With the switch from NCWISE to PowerSchool, Jill was quick to take advantage of the self-directed training, and was inquisitive. She used both state and district resources, along with her fellow data managers, to quickly learn the new state student repository software. Her prior knowledge and experience of relational databases was a big help in needing only a few short weeks to be ready for the opening of the 2013-2014 school year.

Jill embraced the district’s mission by insuring the data in PowerSchool protected the students by having the software being able to report where the students are during the school day, what they are doing at a given time, and who is supervising them. She is now often available to assist her fellow data managers when questions arise about PowerSchool.

Congratulations to Jill, and to Ephesus Elementary, for a successful year in exceeding district and state data entry standards.
