I am honored and privileged to serve as the Calaveras County Superintendent of Schools for a community dedicated to providing quality education for all children. Public education is an essential component of a strong democratic society and gives our children the tools necessary to become successful members of our community.
We have four districts in Calaveras County: Calaveras Unified School District, Bret Harte Union High School District, Vallecito Union School District and Mark Twain Union Elementary School District. Each district is unique and does an outstanding job of educating the students in their care. CCOE also provides a charter school opportunity for students and parents through Mountain Oaks School.
Our job as a county office is to support the efforts of our school districts to improve and increase student achievement, to offer professional development for all school staff, and to provide any other support services requested by the districts or required by law.
“The mission of the Calaveras County Office of Education is to provide leadership through quality service to school districts, students, parents and our community with the goal of achieving excellence together.”
As a long-time Calaveras County resident, my commitment to the educational success of children runs deep. I have had the honor of working for the Calaveras County Office of Education for over 20 years, and my own children attended and graduated from Calaveras County schools. I have seen the success that is possible in our public education system, and I look forward to leading education into the future.
