Solano County Office of Education’s (SCOE) Early Learning system is a collaboration of stakeholders including educators, community agencies, parents, and other professionals working with children birth to 5 years old. Early Learning is focused on supporting the educational community, connecting parents and providers with resources, and increasing the quality of early learning throughout Solano County. The overall goal of SCOE’s Early Learning programs and services is to ensure that each child has access to high quality educational experiences and the resources they need to succeed in school and thrive throughout their lives.

SCOE provides support for early learning professionals in all settings, including Transitional Kindergarten, state-funded preschool programs, center-based child care, and home-based family child care. Through Quality Counts, Solano’s Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS), early childhood education professionals may participate in on-site coaching and training, as well as professional development and program rating.

Explanation about Section 504 and Title II

Section 504 protects qualified individuals with disabilities from discrimination in programs and activities that receive federal funding. Specifically, Section 504 prohibits local education agencies from excluding individuals with disabilities from the participation in, or denying such individuals the benefits of, any program or activity. Section 504 also prohibits local education agencies from subjecting individuals with disabilities to discrimination under any program or activity. Title II extends this prohibition on discrimination established by Section 504 to all activities of state and local governments regardless of whether these entities received federal financial assistance.
