​​Student Services


The Placer County Office of Education Student Services department is comprised of direct student service programs operated by the County Office of Education including: Court School, Community Schools and Pathways Charter School.​

 Assessment and Accountability Spotlight and Resources

​This spring, all eligible California students will take the year-end tests based on their current grade level. This may include the:
  • Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments in English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics.
  • California Science Test.
  • Summative English Language Proficiency Assessments for California or a locally determined alternate assessment as determined by the student’s individualized educational program team.
  • California Alternate Assessments for ELA, mathematics, and science.
  • Optional California Spanish Assessment.

The end-of-year tests will give you, your child, and your child’s teacher(s) important information about this year’s learning. Use test results along with grades, classwork, homework, and teacher feedback to understand whether your child is on track to meet grade level standards, or needs additional support.

Additional Resources

 Court and Community

PCOE works in conjunction with local school districts, the Placer County Probation Department and the Placer County Special Multi-Agency Administration and Resource Team (SMART)​ to establish the Juvenile Court and Community Schools (JCCS)​ for at-risk students. These students have been court-ordered by family court or through the probation department, expelled from a local school district, referred by the probation department, referred by the Placer County School Attendance Review Board (SARB), or voluntarily placed into these programs from parent consent.

These students are placed into one of the following JCCS programs:

  • Honour Schaps Court School - a Placer County School program at the Juvenile Detention Facility serving incarcerated students in our community. View Location​
