The goals of the Division of Governmental Relations are to provide timely and accurate information on impending changes in state and federal law and to act as a conduit for input on state and federal education policy decisions for the Riverside County Superintendent of Schools and the county’s 23 school district superintendents.
To meet these goals, Division staff is housed in Sacramento, providing direct access and input to state policy makers. Staff provides regular updates to local superintendents and their staff on breaking education budget and policy issues, responds to local inquiries on state program and funding requirements, and facilitates timely communication between Riverside County school superintendents and state and federal decision makers.
The Division of Governmental Relations monitors and directs the governmental relations activities of the Riverside County Office of Education and the Riverside County School Superintendents’ Association. The division is led by the Chief Governmental Relations Officer, under the direction of the Riverside County Superintendent of Schools.
