Education Report 2020-21

It is with pride and deep thanks I share with you our Monterey County Education Report to the Community for the 2020-21 school year.

The year presented challenges to education we never could have imaged, but we persevered through with determination, collaboration and dedication to the 75,600 students our county proudly serves.

I hope you receive as much inspiration, information and joy from this report as I do.

Dr. Deneen Guss

CDPH Releases K-12 Schools Guidance

California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has released several updates to K-12 Schools Guidance for the 2021-2022 school year.

The guidance applies CDC's recommendations to the California context, in order to help K-12 schools formulate and implement plans for safe, successful, and full in-person instruction in the 2021-22 school year. This guidance is effective immediately and will be reviewed regularly by CDPH.

Schools in our county will continue to review these updates and will communicate expectations and practices for the 2021-2022 school year to their communities.

Learn about MCOE and School District Redistricting

Every 10 years, a new U.S. Census is conducted, and the population counts are then used for redistricting. Trustee areas must be relatively equal in total population using the new Census counts. After new Census data are released, all jurisdictions must evaluate whether their current trustee areas (boundaries based on the last Census) have equal populations using the new counts. If not, trustee area boundaries need to be adjusted to re-balance trustee area populations. The redistricting process is governed by the U.S. Constitution, federal law, and California law.
