Management consultant Robert Watkins, an Alpine resident, was re-elected as president of the San Diego County Board of Education yesterday. The board sets policy for the San Diego County Office of Education, which assists the 42 school districts in the county with payroll, legal services, certifying teaching credentials, and keeping up with state academic standards, and also operates the Juvenile Court and Community Schools. (One such school is Lindsay Community Day School, which I visited earlier this year.)

La Mesa resident Sharon Jones was elected as the board’s vice president.
