Guided By Public Health

The Marin County Office of Education (MCOE) is committed to ongoing collaboration with Marin County schools under the guidance of our Public Health Officers to meet the challenges we face in delivering high-quality education to our students in the age of COVID-19. The MCOE Rethinking Schools Task Force, with the intimate guidance from Public Health, have developed documents, presentations, trainings and resources that continue to grow and are available on this website. These resources are regularly updated as we learn more and as Public Health guidance changes over time. They are available to schools and districts to utilize as guidance to best meet the needs of your students, staff, families and community.
