California has a three-tiered system of public education. Regulations, funding, and education policy are established at the state level. Responsibility for instruction and fiscal operations of our state’s 1,000 school districts is the responsibility of each individual district’s elected school board.
ACOE, as with all county offices of education, plays a critical role in actively linking state policy priorities and new initiatives to administrators, teachers, students, and parents in the 18 school districts in Alameda County. We provide more than 200 programs and services to district offices in all aspects of school operations, as well as to teachers, administrators, parents, and community-based organizations supporting students in Alameda County.
