AISD gets new executive director of finance

Wednesday, November 30, 2016 by Nora Ankrum

The Austin Independent School District announced Tuesday that David Edgar, formerly the assistant superintendent of business services at Eanes ISD, is now joining AISD as the new executive director of finance. The AISD board of trustees approved his appointment in September. Edgar’s duties will include directing “operations for areas that include budget services, treasury, accounting and payroll, risk management, state and federal grants, and Medicaid and student billing,” according to the district’s announcement. Edgar will also play an important role in helping AISD maintain its high credit ratings, which have “resulted in millions of dollars of savings due to lower interest rates for the district’s bond program and Austin taxpayers,” according to the announcement. In order to “maintain this performance,” said AISD Chief Financial Officer Nicole Conley, the district will “need to make strategic budget decisions and investments.”
