Baltimore city schools' finance chief will leave at the end of the school year to head back north to Connecticut.

Victor De La Paz was appointed chief financial officer of the New Haven, Conn. school district Tuesday night, according to published reports.  According to the New Haven Independent, De La Paz will start his post there on July 14.

De La Paz was brought here from Hartford, Conn. by former schools CEO Andres Alonso in 2012, and his departure means that Baltimore will most likely see a complete turnover of central office leadership when incoming superintendent Gregory Thornton starts his tenure on July 1. 

Thornton announced key appointments to his cabinet, including a new chief of staff and chief academic officer, last week.
