Sacramento County Superintendent of Schools David W. Gordon is announcing the selection of a new Assistant Superintendent to oversee the Educational Services programs for the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE).
Brent Malicote is being named Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services and will now oversee numerous SCOE programs: Early Learning, Foster Youth Services, K–12 Curriculum & Instruction, Prevention & Early Intervention, Special Education, and the Sly Park Environmental Education Center.
Malicote was previously the director of SCOE’s Prevention & Early Intervention and K–12 Curriculum & Instruction departments. Before joining SCOE, he served as director of the California Department of Education (CDE) Professional Learning Support Division. He also has 13 years of successful administrative experience, including leadership roles as a school administrator and as a founding director of a charter school. In 2015, Malicote was named El Dorado County’s Elementary Principal of the Year.
“Brent is a recognized leader in the field of social and emotional wellness, and has a wealth of experience working with a diverse range of students,” Superintendent Gordon said. “He will be a great addition to our Cabinet team.”
Malicote replaces Dr. Nancy Herota, who became Sacramento County Deputy Superintendent of Schools in January.
