Douglas County Schools financial chief leaving cabinet position

Chief Financial Officer Kate Kotaska's last day will be June 30

Posted

Kate Kotaska, the chief financial officer for Douglas County Schools, will be leaving her post in June, just shy of two years with the district's cabinet.

Kotaska took over DCSD's financial services department in July 2020.  Her last day will be June 30, a spokeswoman confirmed.  The spokeswoman said Kotaska has not announced her next role or a reason for leaving DCSD. Kotaska declined an interview regarding her departure.

A hallmark of Kotaska's time with the district has been working with the human resources department to draft a new compensation schedule for licensed employees. The plan gained board approval in March and is aimed at making the district's teacher pay more competitive — a top priority for the school board. 

Before coming to the district, Kotaska worked for a technology and consulting firm that provides K-12 financial software.  She also spent a decade working for Denver Public Schools in financial management. Kotaska is the second DCSD leader to leave a cabinet position this year.  Former Special Education Services Officer Sid Rundle resigned in February.
