For the past 150 years, the SCCOE has been providing services to our community's 275,000 students and 13,000 teachers within our 31 school districts. We also provide direct service to 5,000 students through the State Preschool/Head Start program, Special Education, Alternative Education, Environmental Education at Walden West and coordinate the programmatic and fiscal oversight for charter schools approved by the Santa Clara County Board of Education.
The SCCOE provides educators numerous professional opportunities with seminars and training in topics ranging from art to science to technology.
The Santa Clara County Office of Education launched a new monthly television series, hosted by Jon R. Gundry, County Superintendent of Schools, to help inform the local community about the latest happenings in K-12 education. Spotlight on the SCCOE features Superintendent Gundry and different guests each month discussing important issues affecting education.
