WVUSD Hires New Assistant Superintendent

Jeanette Ullrich began her work with the district Monday as the assistant superintendent of business services.

The Walnut Valley Unified School District Board of Trustees unanimously approved the hiring of Jeanette Ullrich for the position of Assistant Superintendent of Business Services during the meeting held December 5.

The position became vacant with the retirement of JackLeBrun in June 2012.

In August, the Board approved Colleen Patterson to serve in the interim as the District searched for a permanent replacement.

Jeanette Ullrich brings over 23 years of experience in School Business Administration to her new post.

“I am truly honored to have been selected to lead Walnut Valley in this capacity, and am excited at the opportunity to serve the District and its students in the continued pursuit of educational excellence,” Ullrich said.

She served as the Chief Business Official in the Huntington Beach Union High School District since 2007. Prior to that she was the district’s Director of Fiscal Services from 2002-2007. Ullrich also served as Director of Fiscal Services in the Hacienda La Puente Unified School District from 1995-2002.

“We are happy to welcome Jeanette Ullrich to Walnut Valley and look forward to the excellent qualifications and expertise she brings as we deal with the ongoing budget challenges,” said Superintendent Dean Conklin.

Ullrich officially began duties in Walnut Valley on Monday.

"Excited at the opportunity" Means they are paying me way more than my last employer. In fact, a dead body could do better than the retiring Superintendent. Hope they did a background check. Do not need another incompetent criminal in the WVUSD.

Hate to break the news to you, but this is just an ASSISTANT Superintendent. Meaning that after Dr. Conklin retires, she will still be on the pay roll. As for Jack LeBrun, last I heard was that he was another one of the districts "consultants". Consulting what? We don't know. He is just the latest in a long list of retired administrators who come back a year later as a consultant.
