The San Joaquin County Office of Education (SJCOE) is a service-centered agency that supports school districts, students, educators, families, and the broader community with the overarching goal of ensuring that every student in San Joaquin County has an opportunity to receive a high-quality education.
The SJCOE strives to provide opportunities that enrich students' lives and maximize their learning potential, teach students how to be active and engaged citizens of our community, inspire students to be life-long learners, and prepare students for success in their careers and adult lives.
San Joaquin County is home to approximately 150,000 public-school students. The SJCOE works in collaboration with the county's 14 independent school districts and charter schools as well as public service agencies, businesses, and institutions of higher education to meet the educational needs of the county's children so that they can succeed and prosper.
As one of California's 58 county offices of education, the SJCOE supports the county's school districts by performing tasks that can be done more economically at the county level, from fiscal oversight to facilitating professional development opportunities for educators.
The SJCOE also offers unique programs and services for families and children that support academic achievement and social-emotional wellness from birth through preschool, kindergarten, high school, and beyond. They provide direct services to children and adults with specialized needs through alternative education court and community schools, charter schools, Head Start program, and special education programs. They operate innovative programs that support the county's adult learners through the Teachers College of San Joaquin, Come Back Kids program, Greater Valley Conservation Corps, and Code Stack Academy.
