SCOE district and school support networks are opportunities for stakeholders to make connections, explore multiple perspectives and viewpoints, and develop shared meaning. Networks are designed to connect stakeholders around specific facets of education.

Collaborative Voices
Networks are designed to include emergent thinking of all participant voices, values, and perspectives. While a SCOE representative is always present to facilitate, leadership may be shared by participants and invited experts.

Networks and Equity
In order to represent and address the evolving interests of our diverse community, networks allow multiple perspectives to emerge in an authentic setting. Including participants from all districts and LEAs ensures diversity of thought and equitable representation. 

This network brings together Solano County charter schools to update their leaders about state and federal regulations and timelines. It is also a space to share information, concerns, and best practices unique to charter schools.
