Sanchez filled the position left vacant by Johnny Hill, who left LTISD in September after roughly 11 years with the district.
With a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Texas State University, Sanchez has nearly 30 years of experience in business and financial services, the release states.
Sanchez joins LITSD from Georgetown Independent School District, where she acted as the district’s chief financial officer since 2017. Prior to working at GISD, she served as a consultant, administrator and programmer with the Texas Association of School Boards.
“When the senior staff and I began to consider proven business professionals with school finance experience, Ms. Sanchez’s name quickly surfaced in our recruitment process,” Superintendent Paul Norton said.
At LTISD, Sanchez will serve as the chief financial and budget advisor to Norton and the board of trustees and will lead the overall management of all financial and business matters within the district.
Sanchez’s official title will be "assistant superintendent for business and operations."
