The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) celebrated the success of four students in a ceremony held at its conference center today. Proud family members, along with jubilant teachers and staff, enjoyed a poignant ceremony for those receiving certificates of completion through SCOE’s program for high school students and young adults with severe disabilities. The students will now transition to other education or job training programs.
These students represent SCOE young adult programs throughout Sacramento County, including a class at California State University, Sacramento. Many students have participated in SCOE special education programs throughout their educational years, starting in SCOE’s Infant Development Program and continuing through young adulthood.
As part of the SCOE Special Education Department, the SH (severely handicapped) and ED (emotionally disturbed) programs provide services to students ages 3–22. SCOE supports many students, including those with visual impairments, mobility needs, or speech and language impairments. SCOE’s Infant Development Program provides individualized, home-based instruction and family support for infants and toddlers with special needs. Programs are housed at more than 35 school sites in districts throughout the county. Special education services are also provided at schools in facilities operated by Sacramento County Probation.
