Welcome to the Santa Clara County Office of Education. It is with deep commitment that I serve the youth, families, school districts, and communities within Santa Clara County. As your County Superintendent of Schools, I place a high value on cultivating systems for communication and collaboration, championing a culture that is focused on teaching and learning, as well as promoting social-emotional well-being, and health and wellness both in and out the classroom. Santa Clara County schools proudly work to meet the needs of all learners so that every student has what they need to learn, succeed, and thrive.
Rooted in the core principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, and partnership, my office is dedicated to creating safe, inclusive spaces for all students and staff, and developing programs and opportunities that uplift the voices of our youth. We are stronger together.
