MCOE Strategic Plan

Over the past two years, the Monterey County Office of Education has been on a journey to build a comprehensive strategic plan that will guide our work for the next five years. By engaging employees, students and parents, districts, and community stakeholders, we established a comprehensive strategic plan that will shape our work such that MCOE will continue to offer the highest caliber of leadership, support and service to Monterey County schools, districts and our community. This plan will guide the work of the organization through measurable initiatives from 2020 to 2025.

CDPH Releases K-12 Schools Guidance

California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released updated K-12 Schools Guidance which modifies previous guidance to create only one requirement for all schools for the 2021-2022 school year - the wearing of masks indoors by all individuals on school campuses, no matter vaccination status.

Schools in our county will continue to review this update and will communicate expectations and practices for the 2021-2022 school year in the coming weeks.
