    Central Pacific Bank President Lance Mizumoto has been appointed chairman of the state Board of Education.

Central Pacific Bank President Lance Mizu­moto will be the new chairman of the state Board of Education, Gov. David Ige announced Monday.

Ige named Mizu­moto to the school board in April, for a three-year term that began July 1.

By law the governor appoints the chairman of the nine-member board from among its three at-large members.

The board is charged with forming statewide education policy, adopting student performance standards and assessment models, and monitoring school success.

BOE Chairman Don Hor­ner, who was appointed by former Gov. Neil Abercrombie, announced last week that he would step down July 21 after four years in the position.

"Lance is committed to creating a better future for Hawaii’s students," Ige said in a statement.

"He believes that focusing on students and empowering principals, teachers and staff is the best path to success in our public education system. He is committed to school-based decision making. Lance will be a collaborative leader, one not afraid to tackle the tough issues that get in the way of student achievement."
