Building to Serve: A Five-year Strategic Plan for the San Joaquin County Office of Education

The San Joaquin County Office of Education (SJCOE) is a one-of-a-kind service organization with a mission to educate, innovate, and inspire in order to build a bright future for San Joaquin County. To guide and define us as we move forward over the next five years, we have developed a new strategic plan for the SJCOE. It is called Building to Serve because all that we do at the SJCOE is rooted in service. Building to Serve will guide our work and allow us to align our efforts as we reach for our common goals over the next five years.

At the heart of Building to Serve are five priorities to help us leverage the work we do in these areas and chart the course as we move forward. These priorities are:

  • Employee Connection and Development: We will recruit the best talent possible, invest in relevant professional learning, foster career advancement opportunities, and value employee voice.
  • Exemplary Support and Service: We will provide high-level customer service with integrity while maintaining the highest standard of knowledge and resources.
  • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access: We will ensure every student and staff member has access to support and services to ensure opportunities for success. We will embed equity in policies, practices, and planning.
  • Instructional Leadership: We will use data to drive countywide instructional change to improve student learning outcomes. We will be an exemplar of high-leverage strategies and instructional practices.
  • Workforce Development: We will elevate academic programs and community partnerships designed to produce positive community members and workforce-ready graduates.

For each one of these priorities, there will be a team consisting of employees from across our organization who will meet frequently to coordinate efforts to put these priorities into action while meeting defined, specific goals.

The SJCOE plays a vital role in education and beyond, and Building to Serve, our five-year strategic plan, will help guide us as we meet and address the ongoing and future needs of our community.
