Portrait of the superintendent, Patricia GundersonLassen County includes more than 4,500 square miles. We serve approximately 4,500 students in our educational community grades Transitional kindergarten through 12th. Ten individual school districts, three independent charter schools, Lassen Community College and the Lassen County Office of Education work collaboratively to ensure a quality education for each of our students. Working together, all of the Lassen County schools have reached agreement concerning common curriculum and assessments, as well as the use of common instructional practices.

Our schools share many opportunities for professional development, community and career awareness and countywide events for all students. Countywide events include Children’s Fair, Sober Graduation, Lit Jam, STEM Fair, Eighth Grade College Day, Seventh Grade Career Fair, Fifth Grade Day in the Desert, Fourth Grade California History Day and Third Grade Lassen County History Day. These activities are possible, in part, because we have awesome community partners and individual community members. The generous people donate time and financial support in order to ensure our students participate in hands-on learning. The magic of education happens everywhere, in the classroom and in the community, and Lassen County teachers provide high quality, engaging and fun learning experiences for our students.

We are always working on ways to improve our programs and the communication to our parents and community. New ideas? Questions? Or, just a conversation about educational issues? Please feel free to call me at (530) 257-2197. 


Thank you,

Patricia Gunderson
