About SCOE

SCOE Overview

The Vision of the Solano County Office of Education (SCOE)-Preparing students to learn, grow, thrive, and achieve lifelong success.

The Mission-Promoting equity and excellence by working with our school districts and community partners to create opportunities that address the needs of every student.

One Purpose, One Vision, One Voice

SCOE is a partner to the county’s 6 districts, providing services and oversight that help them serve approximately 64,000 students. SCOE does not have or create policies directing district behavior. Each district sets its own policies. Here are some of the key programs SCOE offers:

  • Service and support to help districts meet legal mandates, operate cost-effectively, and raise student achievement.
  • Fiscal oversight to districts.
  • Schools and services for special education and alternative education students who are not enrolled at district sites.
  • College and Career Readiness Services helps districts prepare their students for college and career.
  • Professional development for teachers and administrators.

The board also serves as an appellate body for expulsion, interdistrict, attendance, and charter school appeals. In addition, the board serves as the County Committee School District Organization.
