Welcome to the Northern CA MTSS Coalition Website!

Humboldt County Office of Education (HCOE) is a unique county office serving the rural expanse of Northern California. HCOE supports 32 separate school districts and 74 schools with approximately 70 percent of the 18,236 students on a free and reduced lunch program.

Humboldt County spans approximately 4000 square miles in Northern California and consists of rural coastal and mountain communities. Lending to the rural nature of the county, Humboldt County often does not have access to many resources that support mental health and education. Humboldt County residents are one of three counties in the state of California which are affected by the highest number of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).

Individuals with high ACEs are more likely to suffer from physical and mental health issues. HCOE recognizes the need and importance of supporting the improvement of school climate, social emotional learning, and supporting all students in their educational setting. This commitment to student learning and growth led to the formation of the Northern California MTSS Coalition, established during the 2015/16 school year.

The coordinators of the MTSS Coalition, Peter Stoll and Haley Jones, work as trained consultants supporting districts and school sites throughout Humboldt and Del Norte Counties with the training, implementation, and coaching involved with this initiative.


Humboldt County Office of Education is proud to announce Peter Stoll as the Region 1 leader in the Scale-Up MTSS Statewide Initiative. Click here to learn more about this initiative.
