Debbie Randazzo, Director of Internal Compliance for the CCSD Financial Services division, received the 2014 Pinnacle Award from the International Association of School Business Officials (ASBO).
The ASBO International Pinnacle Awards were established to recognize outstanding practices and new ideas that result in significant contributions to school entities or the profession of school business management. This is a very important achievement in that this award recognizes innovation in the area of school finance.
Ms. Randazzo successfully coordinated the implementation of the Financial Services University last year to provide an online financial tool for Principals and Administrators to utilize. The Financial Services University provides easy access to financial procedures, processes and training and is accessed from the main school district website. During the year, this university was presented to the Board and school district leadership and has received positive input from district staff and other financial organizations throughout the State of Georgia.
Chief Financial Officer Brad Johnson said, “Very few individuals receive this award and we are very proud of Ms. Randazzo and the detailed accounting work that she performs on a consistent, daily basis.”
Ms. Randazzo will officially receive the honor and a award check for $1,000 during the 2014 ASBO conference this fall in Orlando, FL.
