As summer continues to wind down, the 13 school districts around the county are up and running for the 2016-2017 school year. Schools have opened their doors to over 27,000 students.

The Kings County Office of Education, specifically, Shelly Baird School has undergone an extensive renovation improving safety measures for Shelly Baird students and staff. Upon entering the Shelly Baird School campus, visitors will notice the newly designed entrance, including controlled lobby access.

Also, we are excited about the recent 3-year Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accreditation that was granted to our Alternative Education programs. This accreditation represents our commitment to providing high quality educational programing and our staff’s commitment to ongoing, continuous improvement.

Billingsley Scholarship Opportunity



Annually, we take this moment to recognize
Gene Billingsley, former
County Superintendent of Schools, 1986-1998.

Mr. Billingsley believed and practiced with
 every decision,

 “What is done at the County Office must tie directly to the betterment of students or be brought to question”.
