BOE selects leadership positions 


HONOLULU – The Hawaii State Board of Education today re-elected Chairman Garrett Toguchi to another one-year term on the Board's top post.

An Oahu at-large member, Toguchi was first elected to the Board in 1996. He was later appointed to the Board by former Gov. Benjamin Cayetano to fill a vacancy in August 2002. Toguchi was then elected to the Board in November 2002, and re-elected in 2004 and 2008.

Meeting at Lanai High and Elementary School, the Board also elected Oahu at-large member Randall Yee as first vice chairperson. Big Island member Herbert Watanabe will serve as second vice chairperson.

The 14-member Board sets policy for the state’s public schools and libraries, and adopts and monitors student performance standards.
