Sacramento Consortium for Empowering Early Educators (SacE3) Program

The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) was awarded a $3.7 million Early Education Teacher Development (EETD) three-year grant from the California Department of Education.

The Sacramento Consortium for Empowering Early Educators (SacE3), made up of school districts, charter schools, Institutions of Higher Education, and community partners, was formed with the goal of increasing and supporting transitional kindergarten teachers and public and private early learning and care educators with opportunities for:

  • Stipends to complete early childhood education college units required to teach transitional kindergarten
  • Tuition support for internship programs to complete a Multiple Subject or P-3 Teaching Credential
  • Tuition support to earn a Bachelor's degree
  • Stipends to acquire, upgrade, or maintain a Child Development Permit or towards an associate degree
  • Stipends for ESL courses

Due to limited funding, stipends and tuition assistance cannot be guaranteed.
