During ceremonies on May 11 and 12, two cohorts of young adults were recognized by the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) Foundations Academy, which provides services to students from ages three to 22. During the ceremonies, held at the SCOE Conference Center, a total of 14 students received certificates of completion.
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 program started in SCOE’s Infant Development Program and continued in SCOE programs through young adulthood.
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.
