The December 2019 edition of Spotlight highlights some of the important education topics in San Mateo County during 2019, many of which will continue in 2020.

Many of the issues are complex - be they attracting and retaining school teachers and preschool staff, creating safe schools and student safety nets, or addressing societal concerns that impact schools like climate change and vaping. Addressing these challenges takes a great deal of collaboration; we know we cannot do this work alone. Helping raise awareness of critical issues and assembling the partners to address them is an important role for the County Office of Education, and one we will continue to grow in the new year.
