Compass Award Program

The Solano County Office of Education (SCOE) has created a new award. The SCOE Compass Award is an attempt to recognize employees who exemplify the SCOE culture by following the Guiding Principles of Collaboration, Support, and Leadership.
We value these Guiding Principles and endeavor to recognize our employees who honor our guiding principles throughout their work each day.
We encourage all SCOE employees to nominate any SCOE employee, peer or supervisor who they feel exemplifies our Guiding Principles.
An example of someone worthy of recognition might be a para-educator who works well with the teacher, students, and school site teams to support inclusive practices. Someone who leads under his/her job description. Comes to work every day on time, communicates well with the teacher and staff, anticipates the needs of the classroom and responds appropriately within his/ her role. Collaborates in a positive, supportive and consistent way.
The things we want to see, recognize, reinforce, and acknowledge related to leading, collaborating and supporting from wherever you are in the organization.
To nominate someone, please fill out the SCOE Compass Nomination Form and email it to Lisa Reyes in the Human Resources Department at

Employee Handbook

Welcome to the Solano County Office of Education (SCOE). Employees of the county office play a vital role in ensuring the ongoing success of public education in our community. An interesting and challenging experience awaits you as a member of the Solano County Office of Education staff. You join over 400 other county office employees contributing to our organizational mission of fostering student success through service to students, schools, and the community.

This Employee Handbook has been designed to introduce you to our organization, familiarize you with the guidelines and benefits that impact your employment, and answer some of the questions you may have concerning the county office and its personnel practices. The employment policies of the Solano County Office of Education have been developed specifically with the intent of:
  • Ensuring high standards in all programs and services
  • Maintaining and developing the professionalism and skill of the staff
  • Reflecting our commitment to fair and equitable treatment of all employees
  • Meeting legal mandates that apply to employment rights and responsibilities

While this handbook is intended to provide you with a general overview of our employment policies and practices, it does not present a complete description of your employment relationship, and should not be read or treated as an employment contract. Where possible, the handbook guides you to the document, person, or department where you can get more detailed information on specific subjects.

Over time, changing circumstances will require that the policies and benefits outlined in this handbook be updated, revised, or altered. Employees will be advised in writing of any changes that occur in employment policy. As you consult the handbook for information in the months ahead, remember that it may be necessary for you to verify that all applicable information is still current.

Other documents that contain information related to your employment at the county office will include applicable collective bargaining agreements and other documents given to you at the time of your new employee orientation. The Human Resources Department’s section of the SCOE website also contains helpful information for employees.
