Foggiato to Lead CDE’s School Fiscal Services Division

February 14, 2013

The California Department of Education announced Peter Foggiato as the new director of the CDE’s School Fiscal Services Division on February 6.

"Peter brings a wealth of knowledge to his new position at the department," said Tom Torlakson, State Superintendent of Public Instruction. "School districts across the state rely on the department's fiscal experts for help navigating the complex world of school finance, and we're lucky to have Peter heading up that outstanding team."

Foggiato has worked at the CDE for seven years having served most recently as an education fiscal services administrator in the Office of Principal Apportionment and Special Education. Prior to joining the CDE, Foggiato spent seven years as an auditor evaluator at the Bureau of State Audits.

He replaces Scott Hannan, who directed the School Fiscal Services Division for nine years before retiring at the end of last year.

The School Fiscal Services Division apportions funds to local educational agencies and guides them from the state level on fiscal solvency, audit resolution, and financial reports.
