Andrew Leonard, Board President
"The SCOE board is unique in that we are a direct interface between the County Office of Education and the community we serve. Not only does the Sonoma County Board of Education set policy for its alternative education program and serve oversight roles for SCOE, it also models innovative and successful public-private partnerships in the community. We see ourselves as a conduit for progress in education throughout the K-12 spectrum; SCOE staff and the board all work toward this goal together." - Andrew Leonard, Board President
