School Treasurer Resigning to Take New Job

Bill Parkinson will join superintendent in leaving Aug. 1

School Treasurer Bill Parkinson will resign Aug. 1 to take a job with the Willoughby-Eastlake City School District.

It's the second major shake-up this month for the , following that he will retire the same day.

School officials , assistant superintendent for human resources, will replace Lampert.

Parkinson, who has been with Strongsville about nine years, lives in Lake County and said his decision was spurred mainly by the fact that the Willoughby-Eastlake district is five minutes from home.

"It just makes it easier for my family," he said, noting that his 2007 Honda has racked up nearly 200,000 miles.

School Board President David Frazee said in an e-mail that Parkinson has been "an enormous asset" to the district.

"Bill . . . always had accurate numbers at his fingertips of anything someone may ask," Frazee said.

His decision was not a surprise to school board members, who were aware he had been approached by the district and had interviewed for the job.

Parkinson said he will leave the district with "a great financial outlook for the short term," with a cash balance at the end of the year projected at $2 million.

"It's been a great district to work for," he said.

The school board is expected to accept his resignation at its next meeting June 7. At the same meeting, the board is also planning to formally offer a contract to Krupinski.
