To achieve equity, SMCOE commits to:

• Continue to educate ourselves so we are better able to confront and dismantle systemic inequities;

• Center voices of those that have been historically marginalized and underserved, engaging a broad range of educational and community partners, in decision-making, determining priorities.


The San Mateo County Office of Education has utilized the Merit System since 1966 to ensure that classified employees are selected, promoted and retained without favoritism or prejudice. The Personnel Commission oversees a Civil Service (Merit) System of personnel management for San Mateo County Office of Education employees. The Merit System is a method of personnel management which is designed to promote the efficiency and economy of the workforce and the good of the public by providing for the selection and retention of employees, promotional opportunities, in-service training, and other related matters on the basis of merit, fitness, and the principle of “like pay for like work."
