The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) celebrated the success of five students in a ceremony today, held at its conference center. 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 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 the 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 ranging from ages 3–22. SCOE supports a variety of students, including those who have 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 located at more than 35 school sites from school districts throughout the county. Special education services are also provided at schools in facilities operated by Sacramento County Probation.
