Roaring Fork Schools Announces Administrative Changes

The Roaring Fork School District announced two administrative changes in a pair of news releases Wednesday. Christy Chicoine was named the new chief financial officer, and Jonathan Landon, former public information director, was moved to a new position as senior project manager and executive assistant to the board of education.

Chicoine, previously CFO of Garfield Re-2 for more than 16 years, was recognized by Superintendent Anna Cole for her financial management and transparency. She steps into the new role following the departure of former CFO Nathan Markham.

“Throughout the interview process, Christy’s depth of experience, community involvement and demonstrated excellence in school and district financial leadership shone through,” Cole said in a release. “We are pleased to welcome Christy to Roaring Fork Schools and support her, the finance team and district stakeholders as she transitions into the CFO position.”

Chicoine expressed excitement about her new role.

“I enjoy working in the community and making a difference,” Chicoine said in a statement. “Financial transparency and accountability focus resources on organizational and community goals to drive positive outcomes over time. While it will take some time to learn the ropes in the District, I am excited to bring the same focus to the Roaring Fork School District that I have in my previous roles.”

Landon, who previously served as chief of staff and public information director, will no longer be the district’s designated public information director, meaning he will no longer oversee the media relations and communications departments.

“Over the past year, it has been an honor and privilege to connect with our incredibly dedicated and talented staff, serve our school families in the Glenwood Springs, Carbondale and Basalt communities, and regularly engage with our local media partners,” Landon said in a release. “I look forward to continuing to serve our Board of Education and the Carbondale District Office in the 2024-25 school year and beyond.”

Cole expressed her strong support for Landon’s transition into his new role.

“We are pleased to support Jonathan in this refocused and refocused role,” Cole said in a release. “He brings a wealth of experience to the job and will continue to help our leadership teams advance the district’s mission and priorities.”
