LCOE Emergency Operations Plan (EOP)

The Lake County Office of Education's model Emergency Operations Plan is a comprehensive reference, updated to reflect the broader range of hazards and threats that school campuses must now be prepared to face. The Model Plan was developed by the Lake County Office of Education as a tool to assist in the planning and implementation of effective school emergency preparedness programs.

The Model Emergency Management Plan provides a framework for protecting students, staff and school facilities and describes the roles and responsibilities of staff members in a variety of emergency situations. Schools are encouraged to download the Model Plan and adapt it for individual site needs. Please click on the "Documents" link located on the left column (under Emergency Opertions).

The Model Emergency Management Plan is organized into four main sections that conform to the four phases used by the U.S. Department of Education Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools to describe preventing, planning for, responding to and recovering from emergencies:

Includes details on conducting a school hazards assessment, visitor screening policy and violence prevention strategies.

Explains the Incident Command System and how to activate an Emergency Operations Center.  Communications for dealing with rumors, parents and the media, and implementing drills and tabletop exercises are also covered.

Describes the common emergency actions and alert level procedures that may be implemented in various situations.   There are emergency scenarios, with checklists of steps to be taken by the school administrator and staff, also included.

Describes what government assistance is available, the effects of post trauatic stress on students and staff, how to document outcomes and long-term follow-up and evaluation.

Please contact Robert Young, Emergency Services Coordinator, for more information and questions about the plan.

I was born in San Francisco and moved to South San Francisco while in elementary school. I met my wife, Janice, in High School and after receiving my dental degree, we decided to move to Clearlake. Our decision was based on lifestyle and we both do not regret our choice. I was raised in a blue-collar family where education was stressed as a means to fulfill my life’s dreams. My goal, for the students of Lake County, is to provide each one a quality education so that their dreams are not limited by their circumstances.

Patricia M. Hicks

Born and educated in England, I hold a MA degree from Cambridge University in Physical Sciences. I began my professional life as a research metallurgist with Johnson & Matthey, a gold and precious metal company. Soon after our marriage, my husband and I immigrated to Toronto, Canada. My work there was as a process control metallurgist, until I left to start our family. We have two children.

We left Canada for California and settled in Mill Valley. It was there that I began a second career in education. I taught Chemistry and Physics at Jameson Hall High School, eventually becoming its principal. Later I became academic dean at Drew College Preparatory School in San Francisco and continued to teach science courses. During this time, we took out United States citizenship.

Having discovered Lake County, we first bought a summer home and loving it so much we bought land in Upper Lake, built our home and moved here permanently in 1979.

I was first appointed to the Lake County Board of Education in 1981 and have served as the President several times. I have also been the President of the California County Board of Education, and for two years was a director on the California School Board Association.

Over the years, I have been on CSBA's legislative and finance committees and am now chair of the CCBE legislative committee. I believe that I can best serve the educational needs of our children by taking an active part in overseeing proposed legislation and lobbying at both the State and Federal levels on their behalf. My particularly interests are legislation which affects small and rural school districts, county offices of education, the schools and programs they operate, and strengthening the academic performance of all schools within the province of local control.

During my years in Lake County, I have served on the Economic Development Committee, the Alcohol and Other Drugs Committee, and was on the board of Sutter Lakeside Hospital for eleven years.

I hold a simple philosophy of education. From the day we are born we are learning. The greatest gift we can receive is a sound academic education during our school years, giving us the ability to continue to pursue any field of interest for the rest of our lives.

I'm originally from Washington State, but my grandparents were born and raised in Oakland.  Their parents built a summer home on Jago Bay in the 1930s and it is still in our family.  My grandmother moved down the road from that home in 1980 and I have been visiting ever since.  In 1991, having driven up for a visit (we had moved to Walnut Creek by then), I had a funny feeling that someday I would be living in Lake County.  In 2004, that "funny feeling" came true & we've been here ever since!  In my personal time I love to swim, cycle, practice yoga, work in the garden, run, hike, read, explore nature, and meet new and interesting people.  


My husband is a dentist, (Jim Kinsel) and together we own & operate Clear Lake Dental.  We have three kids, ages 10 (James), 11 (Noelle) & 13 (Erica) and I love volunteering in their classrooms or at their schools.


I am a yoga instructor, and am currently working on getting my personal training certification. I'm in the process of working on the 2nd annual Tri Uplifting Lake County event; a mindfulness triathlon designed to uplift, inspire, and bring community together.  The three parts (instead of a run, bike, swim) are guided meditation, a yoga session, and a 3k mindfulness walk.  This is an endeavor that I hope to turn into a thriving organization of its own, offering positivity and a lifting up to any communities, organizations, or causes that could use a boost of positive energy and inspiration.

My parents immigrated from Switzerland and started farming on the ranch where we live, in the year I was born. I was born (1932) and raised on the ranch where I currently live in Kelseyville. Farming has always been my family's business, with dairying, raising pears, prunes, walnuts being the early crops. My husband and I raised wine grapes, starting in 1969, and that is the current crop on the ranch. While growing up in Kelseyville, I was active in 4-H and extracurricular activities at school. Since my parents had a dairy, so much of my time was spent bottling milk and cleaning equipment.


My husband, Walt Lyon, passed away in 2015. He was on the County Board of Education for many years. We raised 5 children in Lake County. They are: Kathy Windrem (Peter), Kelseyville; Thomas Lyon (Pamela), Bend, OR; Marie Kong (Todd), Hopland; Jeffrey Lyon (Jayne), Lakeport; Beth Keiffer (Bob), Hopeland. In, addition, we have nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else but here. During the years of 1976-1978, I was a substitute teacher in all school in Lake County. It was a learning experience for me certainly, but I hope some of the students I came in contact with learned something from me too!

I wish for each and every student in Lake County to get a very good education and go on to some kind of higher education.

                     strategic, effective, inspiring 

Communication is at the heart of everything we do as educators. Effective and strategic communication strategies can strengthen relationships, inspire change, improve a classroom or school climate, build morale, help programs succeed, and leave lasting influence on individuals and communities.

Despite the potential, communication strategies seldom receive the necessary emphasis. In our time-deprived week, with more items on our to do lists than we can accomplish, this important work gets pushed farther and farther down on the priority list.

Our collection of services is designed specifically for districts, schools and educators to identify and achieve your goals, effectively using the resources you have.

Rather than delivering a mish-mash of communication efforts without a clear purpose, we work with you to identify what you want to accomplish, analyze your resources, then design and implement measurable strategies that work.

Contact us to design a customized package of services that blend seamlessly with school and district plans.

Parents are a child’s first and most important teacher, and we are on a mission to inspire every family to hope more, love more and learn more. 

Whether you’ve been a parent for 15 minutes or 15 years, you will never have all the answers.  There is always something new to learn and a different challenge to overcome.  

Our world today is full of advice and support to improve ourselves.   If we want to lose weight, we can join a gym. If we want to improve our health, we can see a doctor or consult health experts.  If we want to be more flexible,  we join a yoga class.  Improve our computer skills… take a class.  But where do we go to become the best parents we can be?  That’s where the Hero Project comes in.  

The Hero Project highlights the strengths of families in our own communities to inspire all of us to be heroes to the children in our lives every day.  Here is a taste of what you’ll experience when you join the Hero Project:

A singular monthly focus to help you hone your skills.  We’ve all heard the instructions on how to eat an elephant -- one bite at a time.  Developing your parenting skills is no different.  Hearing everything you’re doing wrong, and looking at the big picture is overwhelming.  We provide eight very simple but powerful monthly themes that are proven to make a huge impact in the lives of your children and your family. Find out more about the monthly themes here.

Lots of cool prizes and free stuff.  Each month every family in Lake County will be invited to take the Monthly Challenge.  Every day of our lives we hear good ideas, but it’s hard to actually incorporate them into daily life.  Our incentives and prizes will give you the extra push to help you make changes and try new behaviors that can transform your family and your child’s future. Things like books and games, and a chance to win a cash prize will be available every single month.

Life is really busy and stressful.  Families are facing very real problems and overwhelming challenges that make prioritizing our children tough to do sometimes.  The Hero Project uses technology in creative ways to help you keep the children in your life at the top of your priority list -- no matter what else is going on in your life.  

Monthly tips and ideas in your inbox and social media feeds. We will send easy-to-read info to your email box every month, giving you realistic answers to real challenges you’re facing as a parent.  Children’s development is a science, and we will give you the facts in everyday language that help you understand the why and the how of your child’s behavior and development.  You will also find fun, creative and realistic ideas for activities and projects you can do to support and encourage the children in your life. Follow us on Facebook, InstagramPinterest and Twitter and you’ll be filling your head and heart with positive reminders and ideas

Human connection. Technology is great, but we aren’t computers -- we are people.  There’s something special that happens when we connect with another human being that we can relate to.  The Hero Project offers this human connection through our team of Managers and Coaches.  It’s really cool to have a friend who is a mechanic when your car breaks down.  You can call for help and expert suggestions.  Our Managers and Coaches are just like that.  Is your sweet child driving you crazy? Is there a new behavior challenge that you just don’t know how to handle?  You’ll be able to connect with someone who can really help.  There will also be awesome events throughout the year that will be sure to inspire and encourage with in-person demonstrations and ideas.  You’ll make connections with other families, interract with other child care educators and professionals and get cool prizes.

Here’s the deal: One day, you’re going to blink and that cute little person is going to be an adult. Sure, you’ll get to sleep through the night, drink a glass of water without backwash, and save some money on diapers, clothes, food, toys and school supplies -- but I promise you it will be bittersweet. This moment in time is so brief.  Let us help you savor every day and make the most of these years. They will be gone before you know it. 

Be inspired. Live happy. Be a hero.

Welcome to the official web page for the Lake County Office of Education (LCOE).)

The Lake County Office of Education provides services, programs and support to the students, staff, families and school districts within the County of Lake.

Our primary role is to ensure that our students and families are provided with the skills necessary to thrive in the 21st century. We will accomplish this by focusing on three basic behaviors: 

We Serve, We Teach, We Learn.

The website is designed to provide resources and information to you about the many fine programs and services that are provided by the Lake County Office of Education, School Districts and other partners in education.

The LCOE website also is a communication tool. Special events, activities, professional development opportunities and feature articles are included and updated on a regular basis. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome.

Thank you for visiting our website.
