Approximately 650 regular and more than 950 temporary and substitute SCOE staff work year-round providing services that complement and supplement those offered by public school districts in Sacramento County.

Classified Employee of the Month

Ayah Abdulrazzaq, Staff Secretary for the Prevention and Early Intervention Department, was nominated by Coordinator Joelle Orrock for her contributions to the Sacramento County Office of Education. Abdulrazzaq learned the duties of her position quickly, even the complex state prevention data system that requires daily entering and ensuring accuracy. Becoming the department expert on this system has been challenging, yet Ayah stayed the course and learned the system. PEI staff serve up to ten school sites throughout Sacramento County on a weekly basis, requiring materials, printing, and support on an ongoing basis. Ayah meets those demands and consistently reaches out to staff to see how she can assist in other ways. Ayah Abdulrazzaq has been a SCOE employee since 2021.
