Langley’s school secretary treasurer heads off to crunch Vancouver numbers

David Green is leaving the school district to go work for the Vancouver School system.

The man who came in to straighten out the finances of the Langley School District is packing up his calculator and heading to work for the Vancouver School District.

David Green is leaving the Langley School District to accept the position of secretary treasurer of the VSB effective Sept. 1. Green has served as secretary-treasurer of the Langley School District since 2010 and has been instrumental in shifting the district from a deficit to a surplus financial position.

“Mr. Green has been a key leader in strengthening the Langley School District since his appointment as secretary treasurer in 2010. His integrity, professionalism, expertise and support will be greatly missed in Langley and, no doubt, will be valuable to the Vancouver School Board” said board chair Robert McFarlane.

The district won’t be minus one with his departure.

Brian Iseli has accepted the position of secretary-treasurer. As a Chartered Professional Accountant with a CMA designation, Iseli held various positions in the private sector for more than 15 years prior to joining the Langley School District.

“Mr. Iseli joined the Langley School District as assistant secretary treasurer in 2012 and thanks to his effort, skill, and dedication, along with Mr. Green’s mentorship, is now ready to take on the increased responsibilities of secretary treasurer,” McFarlane added.

Green came in at a time when the district discovered it was $13.5 million in the hole due to errors, miscalculations, and overspending. The district made deep cuts to get the books back in order.

In October, the provincial government fired the Vancouver School Board. That district deficit was $14.9 million but has since been reduced to $2.13 million due to the money the district will receive from the Classroom Enhancement Fund to restore class size and composition as mandated by the courts.
