Instructional Coaches

Our Instructional Coaches are here for you!


Over the next several weeks ICs Yvonne and Susan will be delivering the first professional development opportunity to extend learning from our August 23 Eliminating Barriers to Learning (EBL) day. They will be collaborating with your staffs in site discussions about strategies to increase parent and community involvement in our schools.

Teacher to Teacher Observations

Last Thursday, Instructional Coach Yvonne Casalnuovo arranged for a day of collaboration and sharing for our new teachers. 11 teachers, including every elementary site, came to QES to observe veteran teachers and learn from each other. In addition to observing QES teachers, Yvonne had recorded a lesson done by Susan Tantardino at CES that was used to show other 5th/6th grade teachers how she was using our curriculum. They came away with many great ideas, including two pages of notes. If you'd like to see all that they did, check out this notes page- good for beginning and veteran teachers alike.

Change to Media Specialist Position

Drew Garland, our Media Specialist, will be leaving PUSD/PCOE, with his last day being Wednesday, 9/27/17. Thank you Drew for your years of service to PUSD/PCOE and we wish you well on your new endeavor.


We will be analyzing the needs of our county and district to make the best use of this position moving forward. In the meantime, please use the online textbook request form to request instructional materials.


Once again, thank you Drew for being a part of PUSD/PCOE!

VHS Tapes

The Plumas County Office of Education VHS library has reached the end of its time, this outdated technology will be disposed of soon. If there is a title you regularly use and would like to keep in your classroom permanently, please email kwarren@pcoe.k12.ca.us. The remaining collection will be disposed of on October 13, 2017.
