Along with some pretty high-profile national and state races, dozens of OC school board seats were in play on Tuesday, and several communities decided the fate of local measures and community college trustee areas.

Though ballots are still being counted, the Orange County Register has a comprehensive rundown of the latest state and county results that could impact schools in your area.

You can also go straight to the source by checking out the California Secretary of State and the Orange County Registrar of Voters websites.

And here are some other education-related stories we’re following:

  • With Hollywood-style glitz and a little Disney magic, 63 superstar educators from Orange County school districts and community colleges were honored Friday night at a special dinner celebration coordinated by OCDE. For those who couldn’t attend, the OCDE Newsroom brings you photos, videos and a brief recap.
  • Looking to inspire positive school cultures, the Riverside County Office of Education has kicked off a yearlong kindness campaign that will share best practices and suggest new ways to mix kindness into school activities.
