Juneau Schools name new Director of Administration

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) Sarah Jahn will replace David Means who is retiring.

    Jahn joined the district in 2008 and has held several positions.  She was promoted from Finance director.

    David Means retires this year.

    Jahn said she was very excited to get the opportunity and praised Mr. Means for his help over the years, "The Finance officer position does all the accounting in the district.  David has guided me through some tricky accounting situations, helping me learn my way through it.  That gave me the confidence to compile the financial statements for last year's audit.  I feel comfortable and confident with my experience."

    Jahn said she doesn't plan to make major changes, "Not at the beginning.  I'm mostly going to learn about the duties of the job and the people that David directs.  I couldn't be happier to continue my working relationship with my co-workers.  I will look to them to help determine where we can make improvements."

    Jahn said financial constraints mandate the district do more with less revenue.
