DANBURY — The school district has hired two new staff members to lead its finance department.

John Spano is the new finance director, replacing Courtney LeBorious, who left for another district over the summer. Eduardo Miranda will become the deputy director of finance, taking over for the assistant finance director who also left Danbury.

“It’s an honor to be here,” Spano said after his appointment was announced to the school board on Wednesday evening. “I’m very excited to get started.”

Superintendent Kevin Walston called both new hires “capable” and “talented.”


“They’re both going to be amazing fits to our team and amazing fits to our school community,” he said.

Spano has served as a finance director and assistant director for other “high performing” school districts, Walston said. He’s worked in both school and city finance.

“We have someone who is going to help us navigate the budgeting process when that time comes,” he said.
