State Schools Chief Tom Torlakson Appoints
New Director of School Fiscal Services Division
SACRAMENTO—State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson today congratulated Peter Foggiato on his appointment as the new director of the California Department of Education's (CDE) School Fiscal Services Division.
"Peter brings a wealth of knowledge to his new position at the department," said Torlakson. "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."
Peter 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.
