The year 2020 was one like no other. Schools faced many challenges including transitioning to distance learning, addressing acts of hate and violence in the community, responding to natural disasters, and planning for the return to in-person instruction.

Despite these challenges, our school communities rallied together, deepening their commitment to excellence and equity. Educators across the county made tremendous efforts to continue educating students, improving access to technology, connecting families to community resources, and addressing the equity gaps exposed by the pandemic.

Read more about these successes and milestones in the San Mateo County Office of Education's 2020 Report to the Community, which shares the ways in which the county office supported schools, teachers, and students throughout the 2019-2020 school year. The report captures how the county office and school districts responded to the COVID-19 pandemic, highlights innovative programs and initiatives, and shares countywide data to help educators strengthen their efforts.

Thank you for learning more about our work and partnering with the County Office of Education to ensure all students in San Mateo County public schools access and benefit from an excellent and equitable education.
