Toledo Public Schools Treasurer Dan Romano welcomes the new guidelines for his department. The goals are in line with those set for the superintendent and the school board.
The Toledo Public Schools board of education has finished setting goals for the district's top administrators.
The goals are in line with standards the board set for itself last year.
Nine goals and measuring procedures, with plans for quarterly reviews, have been approved for Treasurer Dan Romano.
A list of a dozen goals was approved last month by the board to guide Superintendent John Foley in his duties.
"This really provides the signposts along the way of what we're asking for," board President Steve Steel said.
The goals approved during the board's regular meeting on Tuesday include:
•Improve fiscal integrity and accountability of the district.
•Improve customer service from all treasurer's division operations.
•Improve communications from, to, and between treasurer's office departments.
•Contribute to district improvement efforts in leadership development.
•Contribute to district improvements in effectiveness and efficiency in service delivery.
•Create a "cultural shift" within the treasurer's division that focuses on what the division does for others rather than what they do for the division.
•Improve "intergovernmental relations" in related areas.
•Implement a "supplier diversity program" for the treasurer's division.
•Assist, in the role as "secretary to the board," in providing and facilitating improved communications to, from, and amongst the board of education.
Mr. Romano said he is pleased to have a clear set of instructions from the board that will help him in his work.
"We're all on the same page and moving in the same direction," he said. "I think it's important to always increase the lines of communication."
Mr. Steel suggested to the board that they meet at least in March, June, and September to review the goals of the district leaders and measure their achievement.
