The Oakwood City School District Board of Education has entered into a contract with the Shared Resources Center (SRC) to supply interim treasurer services for the district as longtime treasurer Kevin Philo is departing to serve in the same position in Fairborn.

The district announced late Wednesday afternoon that the contract with the Dayton-based SRC will begin Sept. 1, while Philo’s resignation will go into effect at the end of the day Aug. 31.

A search to find Philo’s permanent replacement has started according to Board President Todd Duwel.

“The Board is committed to investing the time, resources and energy into identifying the best candidate for our district and community. With SRC’s placement, we can proceed confidently, assured the district’s finances are effectively and strategically managed,” Duwel said.

SRC will continue working on behalf of the district until the position is filled and the new treasurer is hired according to school officials.
