I am honored and privileged to serve as the Tehama County Superintendent of Schools for a community dedicated to providing a quality education for all children. The Tehama County Department of Education (TCDE) provides services for the 14 school districts within Tehama County. TCDE is committed to supporting students, schools, districts and our community.

Tehama County is fortunate to have high-quality, committed educators and as a result, a strong educational system. Our students are the reason we do what we do. The magic in education occurs in the classroom. TCDE is committed to supporting teachers and school staff in providing a high-quality education for every child.

Our three Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) goals are: Districts, Alternative Education, and Advocacy.

1. Tehama County Department of Education will provide the leadership and support services necessary for all Tehama districts, schools, and educators to be successful with the work of achieving high standards and high achievement for all Tehama students.

2. Tehama County Department of Education will provide high quality alternative education options for Tehama County residents.

3. Tehama county Department of Education will serve as a representative voice across the region and state for the districts, schools and educators of Tehama County through education advocacy and policy development.
