During an online video ceremony today, two young adults were recognized by the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) Foundations Academy, which serves students ranging in age from three to 22.
The Foundations Academy, part of the SCOE Special Education Department, provides education services to students who require extensive support in a variety of areas, including visual, mobility, and/or speech and language. Many students who complete the Foundations Academy as young adults started in SCOE programs as infants. SCOE’s Infant Development Program provides individualized, home-based instruction, and family support for infants and toddlers with special needs.
SCOE’s Special Education Department provides services in 40 classrooms at more than 20 sites across local school districts. It also provides services at El Centro Jr./Sr. High School (SCOE’s Juvenile Court School), in partnership with the Sacramento County Probation Department.
