The Vision of the Solano County Office of Education (SCOE)-It is the goal of the Solano County Office of Education to respond to student needs with support, collaboration, and leadership by focusing on teaching and learning 21st century skills.
The Mission-The Solano County Office of Education provides effective leadership and services that support the school and community in their effort to provide equitable access to the highest quality education and ensure a positive outcome for every Solano County student.

- Schools and services for special education and alternative education students who are not enrolled at district sites.
