Message from the Superintendent

I consider it an honor and privilege to serve as your County Superintendent of Schools.  I pledge to provide leadership and service for all schools throughout San Luis Obispo County.  The County Superintendent of Schools serves as a spokesperson and advocate for the San Luis Obispo County students, staff and parents. The partnerships between the schools, families, and the larger community are the backbone of any success in the changing world of education.

Research indicates that whom we train and employ as our classroom teachers and school principals, has a great deal of influence on student success. We cannot underestimate the value of a highly qualified teacher or school administrator.  It is imperative that we act now to encourage intelligent young people to consider education as a profession.

Mission

To promote student success by supporting the work of local school districts, delivering specialized student services, and providing countywide leadership and advocacy for the needs of all children.

James J. Brescia, Ed.D., Superintendent
