Project Management Team Wins Statewide Award

Project Management Team Wins Statewide Award

The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) Enterprise Project Management Office recently won a regional community award from California IT in Education, a not-for-profit association supporting tech professionals working in schools.

The annual award recognizes one information technology team from an educational organization across the state for strengthening their community through their service. The Enterprise Project Management Office was honored for its work to bring project management methodologies, processes, and resources to SDCOE and schools across the county. The members of the team are Andrew Baldwin, Reesa Fickett, Peyri Herrera, and Candace Wong.

“It’s rewarding to see the hard work of this team recognized by colleagues from across the state for their commitment to students and for strengthening the school community by sharing their expertise,” said Dr. Paul Gothold, county superintendent of schools.

The Enterprise Project Management Team started in 2019 to support projects in SDCOE’s Integrated Technology Services Division. Word of the team’s early success spread, and local schools also asked for support in project management.

Since then, the team has created the Project Management Academy for information technology leaders at K-12 schools across the county, presented at conferences across the state, and hosted its first online project management conference for more than 300 people from 100 local educational agencies across the state.
