Springfield City school treasurer takes job at Northeastern Local


The Springfield City School District treasurer is leaving for a similar job at another Clark County school district.

Dale Miller, who has been with the Springfield district for five years, will take the treasurer post at Northeastern Local Schools.

“We were just fortunate that the circumstance lined up with our need for a treasurer,” Northeastern School Board President Jill Parker said. “It was fortuitous.”

With Miller’s departure, Springfield City Schools will be the fourth Clark County school that will hire a new treasurer in the last three months.

Miller has worked in public finance for more than 30 years and will retire before moving to Northeastern. He is set to make $105,900 annually at Northeastern.

As the treasurer at Springfield, Miller managed the payroll for more than 1,000 employees, a $96 million budget and made about $119,000 annually. At Northeastern, he will manage a $32 million annual budget and be responsible for the payroll of about 375 employees.

Miller will leave Springfield City Schools on March 1.

“I am very pleased and honored to have been selected as the district’s next treasurer,” Miller said in an emailed statement. “I want to thank the board of education for the trust they have placed in me.”

The new district aligns with his interests, Miller said.

“Northeastern appeals to me due to its rural feel and my love of farming when I am not being a school treasurer,” Miller said. “I look forward to serving the board of education, students and parents of the Northeastern Local Schools.”

Miller had a big role at Springfield City School District, Springfield Superintendent Bob Hill said.

“Dale Miller has been an integral and invaluable part of the SCSD team for the past nine years, serving as treasurer for the past five years,” Hill said. “His financial expertise and leadership skills helped ensure a solid financial foundation year after year. Dale will be missed.”

Northeastern launched its search for a new treasurer when longtime Treasurer Cindy Robinson left the district to take the financial helm at her alma mater, Tecumseh Local Schools.

Opinion: Trump’s curious coalition
