San Joaquin County Office of Education is a regional agency whose mission is to
provide educational leadership, resources, and service to assist school districts
to be effective facilities of learning for all pupils. County Superintendent for
Schools Mick Founts, Ed.D., has set an organizational philosophy and culture at
SJCOE that ensures students come first and that every San Joaquin County student,
regardless of circumstances, has the opportunity for a quality education.
True to this philosophy, SJCOE reaches out by creating partnerships with local districts,
regional programs, community members, and state government to provide services and
programs that would otherwise be impossible. The County Office is recognized for
the educational leadership it provides to local districts and throughout California
with a successful track record of bringing innovative solutions to educational issues
both inside and outside the classroom.
Superintendent Founts also realizes that it takes a dedicated, talented, and knowledgeable
staff to provide students with the educational programs they need and deserve. SJCOE
staff are encouraged and empowered to accomplish identified goals.
