The Calaveras County Office of Education welcomes and encourages community participation in helping all our students achieve excellence.
California’s new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) provides for greater flexibility and accountability in how funds are used in local schools. Every district must now prepare a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) describing the district’s priorities and plans for serving its students. Community input is an important part of these plans.
Each year, CCOE produces or supports four countywide student events – Academic Decathlon, Spelling Bee, Science Fair, and Math Mini Bowl – to directly recognize and promote academic achievement by students in fourth through twelfth grades. Each event helps ambitious students develop confidence, apply their skills and talents, hone their competitive abilities, and connect with their academic peers. Three of the countywide competitive academic events are bridges to state-level competition, which is often the first opportunity our students have to compare their abilities with others outside our rural school environment. Countywide Student Events are successful each year thanks to hundreds of volunteers, strong support from our community, and financial sponsorship by the Teichert Foundation.
County Superintendent Kathy Northington has launched several initiatives designed to promote excellent service delivery by CCOE staff and student success across Calaveras County. ‘Choose Civility,’ CCOE’s ‘High C’s,’ and ‘Every Day Counts’ are three of these initiatives. We invite all community members to participate in and support these efforts.
The “Higher Education” area contains helpful links to resources for students pursuing continued education after high school.
Whenever possible, CCOE makes its meeting rooms and school sites available for community use. The application can be found under Facility Use.
