Hi there! My name is Marlene Rutledge and I am the Academic Business Manager for the Town of Westlake. I work behind the scenes to support the financial operations of Westlake Academy. Unique in its structure, the Academy is the only municipally-owned open-enrollment charter school in the State of Texas.
Operating under the Town’s shared services model, Finance is one of five departments providing multiple support services to the Academy. This model helps us to conserve valuable resources by avoiding the duplication of efforts across both the municipal and the academic functions.
Some of my duties include processing accounts payable and receivable, preparing monthly and quarterly financials, monitoring and reconciling the Academy’s local, state, and federal funds, working with a team of awesome colleagues to prepare the annual operating budget and the annual financial report, and my favorite….being a front-row witness to the amazing work that is achieved at Westlake Academy through the educators and administrators who provide students with an internationally-minded education of the highest quality!
Together, we serve and support all stakeholders of the Town of Westlake.
