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.
To avoid a costly special election, the Placer County Board of Education has selected the provisional appointment process to fill an open seat created by the resignation of Trustee E. Ken Tokutomi due to ongoing health challenges. The unexpired term will end in December 2022.
Interested applicants must be at least 18 years of age and a registered voter residing within the boundaries of the new single-member Trustee Area 6 which covers the areas Loomis Union School District, Newcastle Elementary School District and parts of Auburn Union School District.
Requirements per Education Code 1006: Any registered voter residing in the new single-member Trustee Area 6, which covers Loomis Union School District, Newcastle Elementary School District and parts of Auburn Union School District, is eligible to be a member of the County Board of Education except the County Superintendent of Schools or any member of his or her staff, or any employee of a school district or charter school that is within the jurisdiction of the County Board of Education.
