We have 4 districts in Calaveras County, Calaveras Unified School District, Bret Harte Union High School District, Vallecito Union School District and Mark Twain Union Elementary School District.  Each district is unique and does an outstanding job of educating the students in their care.

The job as a county office is to support the efforts of our school districts to improve/increase student achievement, to provide professional development for all school staff when possible, and to provide any other support services required by law or requested by the districts.

“The mission of Calaveras County Office of Education is to provide leadership into the 21st century through quality service to school districts, students, parents and community with the goal of achieving excellence together.”

As a way of supporting the schools and districts, they operate many specialized programs for at risk students.  They operate a Community Day school as well as many Special Education programs directed at a more challenged population.

CCOE also provides a Charter School opportunity for students and parents.
