Welcome to the Placer County Office of Education. We believe that quality education is a vital priority for the students and citizens of Placer County. The Placer County Office of Education, along with sixteen individual school districts and one community college district, work to strive that every child be equipped with a first-class education to succeed in a global economy, to appreciate the cultural, social and historical resources of their community, and to be active participants in civic responsibilities.

Providing high-quality specialized programs for students.
Recruiting, retaining, and developing highly qualified staff.
Monitoring fiscal accountability and expenditures of our taxpayer's dollars.
I invite you to tour the Placer County Office of Education’s website to learn more about the important programs in our office or to link with school districts in our county. It is my honor to serve you as Placer County Superintendent of Schools.
