Mary C. Barlow, Kern County Superintendent of Schools
AB1200 required that one county office of education in California administer the team. Four county office proposals were evaluated by the state before the Kern County Superintendent of Schools in Bakersfield, California was selected. Administrative Agent Mary C. Barlow, Kern County Superintendent of Schools, and Michael H. Fine, FCMAT CEO, report on FCMAT activities to the FCMAT Board of Directors. The FCMAT Board was expanded to include county superintendents from each of the 11 service regions in the state, as well as district superintendents from each region, and a representative of the California Department of Education. Each year FCMAT submits an annual report to the FCMAT Board of Directors and to the CDE. The annual report summarizes all of the team’s on-site work during the previous fiscal year, as well as any new developments or activities.
