“I encourage anyone who wants to be a member of the Contra Costa County Board of Education to come out and learn about our duties and responsibilities,” County Board of Education President Mike Maxwell said. “This body plays an important role in the educational landscape of this county and can serve as an effective tool to advocate for the needs of everyone in this community.”

There are two CCCBOE Trustee Areas up for election in November: Areas 1, which covers El Cerrito, El Sobrante, San Pablo, Pinole, and parts of Kensington and Richmond; and Area 3, which covers Bay Point, Clyde, Crockett, Hercules, Martinez, Pacheco, Pleasant Hill, Pittsburg, Port Costa, Rodeo, and parts of El Sobrante.

The candidate nomination period runs July 15-August 9, 2024.
