SISD Welcomes New Chief Financial Officer

Sunnyvale ISD’s Board of Trustees has named Brenda Rodriguez the Chief Financial Officer for SISD. The board approved Mrs. Rodriguez’ hiring at a meeting of the Board of Trustees on April 25. Ms. Rodriguez’ first day at SISD will be July 1.

“We are fortunate to have Brenda, who is a skilled administrator with over 20 years of experience in school business and operations,” Superintendent Doug Williams said.

She joins SISD after serving as the CFO at Mabank ISD a position she has held since 2019. Prior to that, she served as the Director of Finance for Italy ISD for a year and before that, worked for Ferris ISD for over 18 years. Her knowledge of school business practices offers SISD continued success on the financial front.

In my years in school finance, I have only had Superior FIRST ratings, as well as clean audits, and have been part of successful bond elections and a TRE election,” Ms. Rodriguez said. “As each year brings new challenges, and every year does, I will continue to budget conservatively and be the best steward of the district funds. I believe the experience and knowledge that I will be bringing with me will ensure that we continue to be successful.

Ms. Rodriguez recognizes the established success of SISD’s business and finances and is eager to build upon it.

“The Business and Operations Department currently functions very well,” she said. “My goal right now is to spend some time getting to know the processes currently in place to see if there are ways to enhance upon the processes to make the department the best it can be for the district.”

Ms. Rodriguez and her fiance, Scott McFalls, currently live in Waxahachie. Together, they have five adult children, two of which are in public education. They also have eight beautiful grandchildren, ranging in age from 16 to 2 months old.
