Ventura County is home to 20 school districts serving approximately 140,000 students in kindergarten through twelfth grade (K-12). Some districts are designated as "unified," which means they serve both elementary and high school students as well as adult education students. Some communities have separate districts for the elementary and high school levels. Elementary school districts generally provide services to K-8 students. High school districts serve grades 9-12 and provide adult education. Court and community schools and many special education schools are operated by the Ventura County Office of Education.
