 Board of Education

Board of Education Image


The Placer County Board of Education, also known as the County Board, serves a vital role as the elected governing body for the Placer County Office of Education (PCOE) that operates under the authority of the California Constitution, the Legislature, California Education Code and the State Board of Education.

The vision of the Placer County Superintendent of Schools and the Placer County Board of Education is to provide exemplary leadership and service to schools, parents and the community as we work together to provide a globally competitive, comprehensive, rigorous and relevant education to all students.

The Board of Education approves the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) for the county office and its charters, approves the county office budget and serves as the appellate body for interdistrict transfer, expulsion and charter school appeals. Additionally, members of the PCOE Board of Education serve as ambassadors for the education system and advocate at the local, state and national levels.​
