Danbury Public Schools has appointed two new members to head its finance department: John Spang is the district’s chief financial officer while Eduardo Miranda leads as deputy principal from September 27.
Spang is the former Director of Finance and School Business Operations for the City of Preston and Preston Public Schools. He earned an MBA from Indiana University and an MS from the Division of Administration, Politics, and Urban Education at the Fordham Graduate School of Education. He holds a dual Bachelor of Science degree in Economics and Marketing from Boston College.
“John has hands-on experience in many areas, including payroll, education-related financial operations, transportation, grants, and food service,” Superintendent Kevin Walston said. “As a seasoned veteran, he will immediately bring stability, planning and a steady hand to our district.”
Miranda, former associate dean of campus administration at Capital Community College in Hartford, has spent the past decade working in higher education. His previous experience includes managing and supervising financial operations at the secondary level. He holds an MBA from the University of Phoenix and a BS from Central Connecticut State University. He was accepted into the University of Massachusetts Lowell’s Doctor of Educational Leadership program.
“Eduardo will be a great addition to our firm not only for his expertise and experience, but also for his clear communication style, his passion and his zeal for this role,” said Walston.
