About Us

Our mission is to empower, inspire and ensure equitable opportunities for every student to thrive. We teach and nurture the whole child in an academically rigorous, collaborative and innovative environment.
 
The Live Oak School District was established in 1872 and currently serves approximately 1,900 students in three elementary schools, one middle school, one K-8 independent charter school, and one alternative school. The student population is 50% Hispanic, 31% White, 19% Other, 30% English learner, and 60% Socioeconomically disadvantaged.
 
We are very proud of our schools, teachers, students, and community and are especially excited by developments in recent years to further support our students' experiences. In 2016, Live Oak renewed a parcel tax to support school libraries, art, music, science, and physical activities; this fund will provide approx. $500,000 to schools for these purposes every year. Also in 2016, a new Boys and Girls club opened at Shoreline Middle School that is a result of a partnership between the Live Oak School District, Boys and Girls Club, and the County of Santa Cruz. In 2013, Live Oak was designated a "Playful City USA" community by KaBOOM! for its commitment to childhood play; and in 2013, Live Oak Elementary School won an Imagination Playground through a KaBOOM! grant/Facebook vote. These activities demonstrate the investment and excitement about living and learning in Live Oak that we hope will continue.

Superintendent's Message

Dear Live Oak Families,
 
I would like to share another update with you as we complete 25 full days of Distance Learning. This has been quite an adjustment for all of us. As parents now taking on multiple roles, sometimes it can feel overwhelming; that you just cannot do enough. I just want to say... YOU are enough. You are what matters most to your family. So give yourself a break and take care of yourself! If you feel anxious, worn out and running on empty... you won’t have anything more to give to those you love.
Lorie Chamberland
