Welcome to Our Website

The San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE) redesigned its website in 2019 to be more user-friendly and accessible to all visitors. The redesigned website includes the following features:

  • Alternative text for all photos and other media 
  • Proper use of headers, tables, and other components
  • High color contrast as well as a "High Contrast" button to increase the website's color contrast
  • Clearly written and organized content 
  • One main navigation bar with clearly defined sections
  • Navigation organized around key user groups (schools, educators, families, and communities)
  • Ability to translate website into almost 100 different languages

Website Accessibility

SMCOE is committed to ensuring the accessibility of its website to people with disabilities. To the extent possible, all new and updated web content produced by our organization will meet Website Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, AA conformance level. Please contact us if you discover areas of our website that you find difficult or challenging to understand because of accessibility issues or any other reason.
