About Us

Established in 1854, the Stanislaus County Office of Education (SCOE) provides educational services and more.The County Superintendent of Schools and SCOE staff provides communications services, data and statistics, research analysis, internal audit services, and planning and support services to the 25 school districts and other educational agencies with resources. 

It would not be cost effective for each school district alone to acquire the many services needed to operate. That's why SCOE provides districts with an array of business, technology, professional development, credentialing, education, teacher recruitment, and support services. SCOE provides teacher, administrator, and instructional support services to improve teaching and learning in the classroom and increase achievement for all students. SCOE also serves as the connection between our schools and the state and federal governments. Every year new laws are passed, new programs are mandated, and old programs are phased out. SCOE monitors changes in legislation and offers its staff as a resource to inform and train district administrators so that they stay current with changing laws that affect education.
