The Sutter County Superintendent of Schools Office plays an important role in the delivery of quality education to the students of this county. We provide direct service instructional programs to nearly 9,500 students annually through infant programs, special education, vocational/ occupational programs, outdoor science, and alternative education. These programs are operated more efficiently by the county than by a school district (with economy of scale) and more appropriately than a school district with confined boundaries. The Sutter County Superintendent of Schools Office provides these services to district students through cooperative agreements among participants.
Congratulations to 2014 Community Advisory Committee (CAC) grant recipients Maria Ringo, Elizabeth Ballou and Katy Wood! Each received a grant award of $750 for demonstrating exemplary program practices for students with disabilities.
Elizabeth Ballou teaches a Sutter County high school special day class for students with Autism. The focus of the class is to teach functional academics and life skills. To do this, Elizabeth has created a coffee business! The students take orders, make the coffee and hot chocolate, fill and deliver the orders, keep an accounting and clean up. This is an actual business earning real money with regular customers who pay to purchase the items. What a fun way to learn about work and income! Thank you Elizabeth!
The Sutter County Superintendent of Schools (SCSOS) – Intervention & Prevention Programs (IPP) is proud to lead in coordinating a comprehensive effort to boost student attendance and address chronic student absences in Sutter County Schools. Leading national researchers have proven that students who are chronically absent in kindergarten and first grade are far less likely to read proficiently by third grade. It’s important to emphasize to students and parents that these are pivotal years for laying the foundation for good attendance habits and school success throughout a child’s academic career. The Attendance Matters: Every Student, Every Day, Every Opportunity campaign will focus in grades kindergarten through third. Please click here for additional information.
