General

  • Mission:
  • The Calaveras County Office of Education is considered a school district by the IRS, and is overseen by the Calaveras County Board of Education.

    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.

  • Overview:
  • We have four 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.

    Our job as a county office is to support the efforts of our school districts to improve 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.

    To support our schools and districts, we operate many specialized programs for at risk students. One of these programs is the Calaveras Youth Mentoring Program, for which we are seeking Lawrence Foundation support. We also 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.

  • History:
  • Calaveras County is one of the original 27 California counties. Its name comes from the Spanish word for "skulls" and for which a river had been named by the Spanish Explorer Garbriel Moraga in 1808. It is located in the central portion of the Sierra Nevada foothills known as the Mother Lode region in recognition of the California Gold Rush, whose miners sought the "Mother Lode" of rich gold ore. Calaveras County is home of the world renowned "Jumping Frog Jubilee" inspired by Mark Twain's popular story of the "Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County."

    The county extends from the "plains" at the edge of the San Joaquin Valley easterly through the rolling foothills and historic Mother Lode communities, up into the great pine forest, and to the crest of the Sierra Nevada mountains. It is bounded on the north by the Mokelumne River and Amador County, and on the south by the Stanislaus River and Tuolumne County. Calaveras County's eastern border is the high sierra country and Alpine County. Both San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties border on the west.

    The economy of Calaveras County is primarily dependent upon recreation, ranching, service employment (governmental, schools), and some mineral extraction and timber harvesting. Approximately 45,000 people live in the county and there are nearly 6,500 children, kindergarten through grade 12, who are in public schools.

    Calaveras County has a rich heritage of education that dates back over 150 years. During the Gold Rush, small private schools fulfilled the educational needs of the families, and were often held in the homes of the teachers. After state legislature set up the framework for a public school system, Calaveras County soon had six schools in operation. Today, the schools within our county are among the finest in the state and continue to aim for excellence in education.
