Former county Superintendent of Schools Karen Sakata administered the oath.

“I am grateful the voters continue to have faith in me to lead the county office of education and serve as an advocate for public education,” Mackey said. “We have a mission to support the most vulnerable students and families and I am proud to continue this work. We have a lot to do and look forward to continuing that work with the talented and dedicated teachers and staff at the Contra Costa County Office of Education and at schools and districts throughout the county.”

In her first term, Mackey led the county office of education during the COVID-19 pandemic and helped provide students, schools and districts with resources to navigate the pandemic. She placed an emphasis on equity and has overseen large grants designed to improve literacy for students in the county and throughout the state.

Mackey was unopposed in the June primary election as she won a second term in office.

Mackey has been with CCCOE for more than 25 years. She began her career teaching in some of the county’s most challenging classrooms and schools within the county detention facilities. She became the principal of the county’s Court and Community Schools, and in 2012 and 2018 was awarded Administrator of the Year for her work with some of the county’s most vulnerable students.

Mackey holds a Master's degree from Cal State East Bay in Educational Leadership. A lifelong resident of Contra Costa County, Mackey currently resides in Martinez.
