Keith Butler will replace Randie Allen as the Coronado Unified School District’s assistant superintendent for finance and business services.
Superintendent Jeffrey Felix made the announcement Thursday at the school board meeting after coming to the decision to hire Butler the day before. Interviews had taken place earlier in the week.
Butler works as a consultant for business advisory services for the San Diego County Office of Education, where he oversees finances for the district. He has been in his current position three years.
He will take up his new post Jan. 9.
Previously he was senior program manager at Kaplan Virtual Education and associate dean of extended learning at California State University San Marcos. He also has private sector experience, as a banker and co-owner of a wholesale baking company.
Butler, 50, a native Californian, earned his doctorate at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.
