Board Recognizes March 2019 Employees of the Month

The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) is one of 58 county offices located throughout the state. Approximately 650 regular and more than 950 temporary and substitute SCOE staff work year-round providing services which complement and supplement those offered by public school districts in Sacramento County. The Sacramento County Board of Education celebrates the accomplishments and exemplary service of SCOE employees through the Employees of the Month Program.

Classified Employee of the Month

Eliane Perrone, Adult Re-Entry Program Transition Specialist, was nominated by Sacramento Community Based Coalition Director Marc Nigel for her contributions to SCOE. Ms. Perrone is a Transition Specialist at the Placer Re-Entry Program, where she has a high outcome rate for graduates and helps clients transition into their communities. She helped establish procedures to support program efficiency for clients obtaining Medi-Cal, GED or high school diploma. Recently, she filled a void by providing supplemental services to clients in Kings Beach, Lake Tahoe. Without hesitation, she volunteered to meet this need and established services for this underserved community. Ms. Perrone has been employed by the Sacramento County Office of Education since July 2015.

Certificated Employee of the Month

Joseph Wilson, ROP/CTE Teacher, was nominated by Sacramento Community Based Coalition Director Marc Nigel for his contributions to the Adult Re-Entry Program. Mr. Wilson provides instruction and opportunities in landscaping and horticulture, coordinates community service projects, and serves as a liaison involving special ventures for Adult Re-Entry programs in Placer, Sacramento and Yolo Counties. All sites combined can serve up to 650 clients at a time, and he is committed to ensuring every client has an opportunity to learn. Helped by re-entry volunteers, Mr. Wilson partners with community agencies to complete projects that improve public areas. Clients benefit long-term from participating in these projects by learning how to work with others in real-life scenarios. Ultimately, this translates to employable skills which are part of successful re-entry. Mr. Wilson has been a Sacramento County Office of Education employee since July 2007.About SCOE's Employee Recognition Program
