Transforming systems through an aligned and integrated approach to educating the whole child

Whole Child and Community Design is a committment to honoring diverse voices, leveraging community relationships, and ensuring the well-being and success of every child. SDCOE operates one of eight regional technical assistance centers that will support local LEAs with the complexities of community schools planning, implementation, capacity building, and organization, and help districts implement culturally relevant practices and build equitable systems that create conditions for all members of the school community to thrive.

SDCOE is also recognized as a California Regional Technical Assistance Center for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and is committed to providing professional development for districts and sites with implementing PBIS in accordance with the National Center on PBIS and the California MTSS Framework.
