We are excited to announce some changes in our Payroll Department and introduce you to a couple of our newest district office staff members.

Introducing Tara Boothroyd

Tara and her husband have two grown sons, both of whom also graduated from SEP. She is a loving grandmother to four grandchildren: Jonah (8), Caroline (7), Jacie (4), and Caylee (3). They attend Willowbrook Elementary and bring immense joy to her life.

Tara is an enthusiastic fan of the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Minnesota Vikings. In her spare time, she enjoys camping, fishing, gardening, hosting cookouts, and watching her grandchildren play baseball. Above all, she cherishes spending time with her family and is truly honored to be a part of the SEP School District. Tara is our payroll specialist.
