Chief Business and Financial Officer Kim Stallings announced this week that he will retire from the Long Beach Unified School District at the end of March.
“Words cannot express how meaningful it has been for me to be a member of such a great organization,” Stallings said. “My decision to retire from the Long Beach Unified School District has not been an easy one and was made for purely personal reasons. I look forward to maintaining my relationship with the school district and the many wonderful people I have come to know.”
LBUSD Superintendent Christopher J. Steinhauser plans to name an interim finance chief who will take the helm upon Stallings’ departure. In the meantime, the school district will conduct a search for a permanent replacement.
“Kim and his staff have helped to guide our school district through extremely difficult financial straits,” Steinhauser said. “I deeply appreciate the positive and lasting contributions he has made to our schools and students.”
Stallings has held the CBFO post since 2004, when he joined the school district. His career as a teacher and administrator spans more than 27 years.
