The County Board of Education is the governing board for the San Diego County Office of Education in areas under its jurisdiction and derives its authority under the California Constitution, acts of the California Legislature, the San Diego County Charter, and the regulations of the California State Board of Education. The office of the County Superintendent of Schools, known as the San Diego County Office of Education, under the guidance of the County Board of Education, serves as a liaison and coordinating agency among public and private educational and non-educational entities at school, district, county, regional, state, and federal levels. Certain services are mandatory administrative and business functions. Other services are desirable in terms of their contribution to the educational process. In addition to its compliance, oversight, and coordinating responsibilities, the San Diego County Office of Education maintains a variety of instructional programs, including but not limited to classes for juvenile court and community schools, special education, preschool, and migrant education programs.
