The Solano County Office of Education (SCOE) wants to ensure even the youngest learners have the tools needed for education.
The agency has partnered with the First 5 Solano Commission and Solano County Library Literacy Services to provide 5,500 backpacks filled with school supplies to kindergartners and transitional kindergartners at Solano public schools.
The backpacks are filled with everything a child needs for learning, including crayons, pencils, paper, and cards to help youngsters learn letter sounds and sight words. Unit counters, a dry-erase board and markers are also included in the backpacks to support virtual learning at home.
