County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Randy Ward released this statement regarding the election of Alicia Muñoz to the 3rd District seat and Doug Perkins to the 5th District seat on the San Diego County Board of Education:
Congratulations to Alicia Muñoz and Doug Perkins, the newest members of the San Diego County Board of Education.
Through its role of long-range policy development and other critical functions, the board works with the county superintendent and San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) staff to offer the most effective education programs and district support services. The board also encourages the involvement of families and communities and is a vehicle for citizen access to communication about SDCOE's programs and services.
I am looking forward to working with both Alicia and Doug, and the other members of the board, on behalf of the nearly 500,000 public school students in San Diego County.
