Recent shifts in the Human Resources Unit will help the San
Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) better serve its employees and the
county’s school districts while saving money.
The biggest change is the creation of a new position of
special assistant to the superintendent, which will include the duties formerly
assigned to the superintendent’s executive assistant as well as assisting with
strategic planning, organizational development, and other special projects for
the Human Resources Unit.
“It saves the County Office money, because we are going to
effectively be using one person to meet both needs,” said Michele Fort-Merrill,
assistant superintendent of human resources.
Other employees in the Human Resources Unit will also assume
new positions that will help SDCOE better serve the public.
