 How You Can Make a Difference in the Lives of Students

A local board of education has one of the most important responsibilities in our society—helping plan the education of the children in the community. Its decisions affect the lives of students and their parents as well as the economic well-being of the community.

Making a difference in the lives of students is one of the best things about being a San Diego County Board of Education member, says Mark C. Anderson, District 4 board member.

The San Diego County Board of Education is looking for qualified candidates to fill a current and an upcoming board vacancy. This is an exciting opportunity to serve in a countywide capacity to make a difference in the lives of our region's kids.

As a County Board of Education member, individuals will participate in policy making and planning in the best interests of county students. They will also help the San Diego County Office of Education's work to eliminate educational opportunity gaps that are barriers to student achievement as well as support the implementation of strategies to ensure global workplace readiness for all students.

Being a part of the board is working on improving the profile of education throughout the community and working with a group of dedicated professionals throughout the County Office of Education who believe in education and making an impact on students' futures, says Anderson.
