Experienced Chief Financial Officer Joins RPS 205 Leadership Team

Belvidere School District’s longtime finance leader Dr. Greg Brown will join Rockford Public Schools next month as its Chief Financial Officer and member of the district’s leadership team. Dr. Brown will replace Chief Financial Officer Michelle Jahr when she retires in December.  

Dr. Brown has worked as CFO for the Belvidere School District since 2009. He has a master’s degree in education and a Doctor of Education degree in leadership in educational administration. He holds superintendent certification and chief school business official certification.

“Dr. Brown has clearly demonstrated success at Belvidere,” said RPS 205 Chief Human Resources Officer Matt Zediker. “His knowledge and caliber coupled with his service on various local boards and non-profit organizations illustrate his local commitment. That combination will ensure a smooth transition for our finance department, which leads the way in ensuring our budget best supports students.”
