Welcome to the Merced
County Office of Education website. Our site has been developed to make it easy
to find and share useful and up-to-date information for parents, educators,
students, and community members. I hope you will take time to browse through
our web pages to learn about our programs and services that support education.
Family and children are a high priority in Merced
County. Our committed educators and
supporting staff work hard each day to address the needs of more than 70,000
PreK-12 students and to prepare them to be career and college ready. There is a clear understanding that we are
preparing students for jobs that do not exist in technologies that have not
been invented yet. In order to prepare
students with 21st century skills, students must be proficient in the “Three
Rs” and “Four Cs” in order to enter the workforce of the future. Proficiency in reading, writing, and
arithmetic has to be fused with teaching students to think critically, be
creative, collaborate, and communicate effectively.
I am honored to have the privilege of serving as your county
superintendent that is dedicated to providing a world-class education where
every student succeeds.
