Michael Boyer, chief financial officer for the Manatee County School District, has resigned from his position, effective June 27.
The district announced Boyer’s resignation Thursday afternoon.
In his resignation letter, Boyer says he is leaving to pursue a new job opportunity.
“I never thought I would ever leave what is now positioned to be a very great school district, but when the opportunity arose to pursue a new opportunity, I simply had to take advantage of it,” Boyer wrote.
Boyer became CFO of the district in April 2012.
Don Hall, Manatee County deputy superintendent of operations, said the district will immediately begin the process of replacing Boyer.
During the period between Boyer’s departure and the hiring of a replacement, the district will consult former school district CFOs in Florida to help close the books for the current school year.
If necessary, Hall says, the district will hire an interim CFO to assist with the transition.
“We are very confident that the Manatee County School District is heading in the right direction to return this district to a state of financial health and stability,” Hall said. “We will make the necessary adjustments in light of Mr. Boyer’s resignation and continue to build on the progress we have made so that we can ultimately reinvest in our students and employees.”
