Coordinating Council

Contra Costa County has a long history of active coordination between local school districts and the County Office of Education. This coordination is especially important when services for expelled students are involved. The County Office of Education Directors meet every other month with local district representatives to discuss issues of common concern, usually focusing on the most difficult to serve students. These meetings are also a forum for communication and information sharing among school district administrators, County Office of Education administrators, and key personnel from the Probation Department, District Attorney's Office, Child and Family Services, Juvenile Courts, and other county agencies who work with students on attendance and behavior related issues. In addition to its bimonthly meetings, the Coordinating Council convenes additional meetings focused on particular topics as needed.

Some key activities addressed by the CCC Coordinating Council are:

  • Share best practices and concerns related to SARB (School Attendance and Review Board) processes
  • Review new legislation and discuss implementation strategies
  • Review changes in district board policies and procedures
  • Review and update the County Plan for Expelled Students every three years
  • Discuss agency and district needs
  • Identify strategies and/or programs to improve student attendance and promote student success
  • Improve district and county wide coordination efforts to improve student attendance and promote student success
