BROOKFIELD — The Brookfield School Board on Thursday hired Austintown resident Jordan Weber as the school district’s new treasurer beginning Sept. 9.
Weber was given a three-year contract through July 2025 at $87,979 a year.

He said he heard about the opening from another treasurer and applied.
At the CCESC, which oversaw the special education services, the treasurer’s department took care of 350 employees.
“I had many clients who lived in the Brookfield area, so I know the area well. I appreciate the opportunity to work in what is a great school district and help it grow. I look forward to working with the administrative team,” said Weber.
Board chair Sarah Kurpe said Weber was selected from three candidates.
“We are very happy to have him here. We have seen his experience over the past three years as Assistant Treasurer as a big star,” The shoe says.
“We understand that filling a treasurer position can be challenging for any school district. We believe that his experience and background were very important in filling this position. He was a serious candidate. »
She said the board also praised Weber’s personality and positive attitude.
