The many contributions of Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) certificated and classified staff are being recognized by the Sacramento County Board of Education in May.
County Board of Education Trustees voted unanimously to adopt two resolutions honoring SCOE employees. Board Resolution No. 02-05, adopted April 16, proclaims May 8, 2002, as the Day of the Teacher. The week of May 19-25, 2002, has been declared in Board Resolution 02-07, adopted May 7, as Classified School Employees' Week.

Receptions honoring SCOE classified employees will be held at three central SCOE sites on May 22 during Classified School Employees' Week:
- Lincoln Village Drive Administration Building (10 a.m.)
- Support Operations Administration Building (2 p.m.)
- Regional Occupational Program Administration Building (3 p.m.)
The 700-plus SCOE employees make it possible for SCOE to:
- Directly educate more than 30,000 students annually;
- Provide fiscal oversight of 16 local school districts;
- Provide educational leadership and support to school districts;
- Provide school districts with economies of scale savings through group purchasing, technology services, community-business partnerships, and specialized educational programs and training; and
- Increase educational resources available to the county’s students, including the securing of more than $50 million in grant funding for 2001–02.
