Steven E. Gomes, Ed.D. 

County Superintendent of Schools

I believe every Merced County student should have the opportunity to succeed in school. Student success should take the form of new skills and knowledge, allowing new choices and achievements at school, work, home and in the community.

As County Superintendent of Schools, I pledge to lead the over 1,000 Merced County Office of Education (MCOE) staff members to support student success. Their work includes direct service to students in Migrant Education, Regional Occupational Programs, Special Education, Valley Community School, Court School, Early Care and Education, Head Start, and Jack L. Boyd Outdoor School.

If you have questions or suggestions about education in Merced County, please call 209-381-6601, email or write me at 632 West 13th Street, Merced 95341-5908.
