The majority of California’s county offices of education are governed by a locally elected county board of education and operated by a locally elected county superintendent. County board members serve as a link between the community and the county office of education and its superintendent. CCBE serves county boards of education by providing resources that help board members and superintendents work as effective governance teams, and by advocating on behalf of the needs and realities of each county office.
