The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) celebrated the success of 23 students this year in two individual ceremonies held at its David P. Meaney Education Center. Proud family members and jubilant teachers and staff enjoyed poignant ceremonies for those receiving certificates of completion through SCOE's program for high school students and young adults with severe disabilities. The students will now make the transition to other education or job training programs.

These students represent SCOE young adult programs located throughout Sacramento County, including a class located at California State University, Sacramento. Many of these 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) Program provides services to students ranging from ages 3–22. SCOE supports a variety of students, including those who have visual impairments, mobility needs, or speech and language impairments. Programs are located at multiple school sites from eight school districts within the county. Special education services are also provided at schools operated by Sacramento County Probation.
