SCOE has been the recipient of a California Student Opportunity and Access Program (Cal-SOAP) grant (from the California Student Aid Commission), and has served as consortium partner and fiscal agent for the Sacramento Cal-SOAP Consortium. Cal-SOAP addresses the problem of low college attendance among students from low-income families and from schools with low college-going rates.


Each year trained speakers (including college outreach representatives, Cal-SOAP staff, and school counselors) conduct workshops for more than 5,000 juniors and seniors in more than 200 classrooms in nine schools. Approximately 600 juniors are seen each year individually or in small advising groups and followed through their senior year for individualized assistance with college selection, applications, and financial aid. Additionally, the Cal-SOAP grant pays for more than 30 tutors in about 80 AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) classes among 20 schools, covering approximately 2,400 middle and high school students. Thirteen districts participate in the program:

  • Elk Grove Unified School District,
  • Folsom Cordova Unified School District,
  • Galt Joint Union High School District,
  • Natomas Unified School District,
  • River Delta Unified School District,
  • Sacramento City Unified School District
  • San Juan Unified School District, and
  • Twin Rivers Unified School District.
  • East Nicolaus Joint Union High School District
  • Live Oak Unified School District
  • Marysville Joint Unified School District
  • Williams Unified School District
  • Yuba City Unified School District
