About Santa Clara County Office of Education
Working collaboratively with school and community partners, the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) is a regional service agency that provides instructional, business, and technology services to the 31 school districts of Santa Clara County. The County Office of Education directly serves students through special education programs, alternative schools, Head Start and State Preschool programs, migrant education, and Opportunity Youth Academy. The SCCOE also provides academic and fiscal oversight and monitoring to districts in addition to the 23 Santa Clara County Board of Education authorized charter schools.
The SCCOE's Special Education Department partners with the county's schools to serve students with disabilities from birth to age 22. We provide a variety of services for children and students with severe or low-incidence disabilities through instructional programs divided into Early Education (birth to age 3), preschool, elementary, secondary and post-senior.
We operate classes on public school campuses to serve children with special needs, and we align all classroom curriculum goals with the California Content Standards and the Preschool Learning Foundations.... Our students receive instruction in the regular core curriculum in the state content areas and participate in state testing programs.
The SCCOE also acts as Local Education Agency (LEA) for students who reside in Licensed Children's Institutions and attend nonpublic schools. The Special Education Department also provides services to special education students attending institutional schools, community schools and pediatric-skilled nursing facilities.
