Embattled D.C. schools’ Chief Financial Officer Pamela Graham has resigned, The Examiner has learned.City Paper blogger Ruth Samuelson has a follow-up here and here.
She will be replaced by Noah Wepman, an aide to city Administrator Dan Tangherlini, sources told The Examiner.
Graham was the top financial official for the schools for just under two years. She struggled to bring the $1 billion school system’s accounts under control.
Last summer, schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee asked city Chief Financial Officer Natwar Gandhi to replace Graham, sources said. Gandhi resisted, but sources say he finally relented late last week when his top deputies told him Graham wasn’t up to the job.
