 Employment Changes Save Money, Improve Service

​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.
