SUSD’s former head of finance in the district stepped down last month amid an investigation into conflict of interest.

Laura Smith had a stake in a consulting firm that did business with the district. An investigation from an outside attorney found she did not fully disclose her conflict of interest and continued to sign off on paperwork related to the firm.

The governing board said they plan to post the job by the end of the month.
