The Del Mar Union School District Board of Trustees took unanimous action Jan. 19 to appoint Cathy Birks as the assistant superintendent, business services of the DMUSD. The district staff and the board of trustees members said they are looking forward to working with Cathy in her new position.
Birks has been employed with the Del Mar Union School District for 10 years, most recently as the business services specialist working under the assistant superintendent, business services. Due to the absence of an assistant superintendent, business services, for the last six months, Birks has been responsible for completing many of those functions. Prior to serving as business services specialist, she worked under former director of facilities, Kathy Tanner, in the position of facilities accountant.
As a member of the district’s Leadership Team, Birks will play an integral part in the strategic planning process.
