How can I get information or contact the San Carlos Elementary School District?
The San Carlos School District operates elementary and middle schools in San Carlos. We have included the school websites for your information.

The schools in San Carlos use the World Wide Web to inform the community about their programs and events. The schools also use the Internet in the classroom.

As a result of the work of many San Carlos parent volunteers, the school district staff and their participation in Smart Schools Net Day, these schools and the school district office were among the first in Silicon Valley to communicate with the public using the World Wide Web. You can find links to San Carlos schools on the city's website.

What is the 2+2 Program?
The 2+2: Strength in Numbers program is a joint program operated by the City of San Carlos and the San Carlos Elementary School District. Recognizing that both agencies serve the citizens and children of San Carlos, the city and schools formed the 2+2 program. Several times a year, two members of the city council and two members of the San Carlos School Board meet with key staff members from each agency to look for areas where the city and schools can work as a team. The result of the 2+2 program has been increased educational and recreational opportunities in San Carlos. It has been able to improve access to schools, bring more technology to classrooms, and save money for both the city and the school district in the process.
