Ensuring Equal Access to Education for Disabled Students in Contra Costa County

The Contra Costa County Office of Education (CCMCC) is dedicated to providing equal access to education for all students, regardless of disability. To ensure this, the CCMCC has implemented a range of services and programs to meet the needs of students with severe disabilities between the ages of 3 and 22. All classes are back on campus, and the CCMCC is currently working to offer a hybrid option for programs that qualify. The CCMCC is committed to upholding the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”) and other civil rights laws, and will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its services, programs, or activities. To ensure students are transported to and from school in a timely manner, First Student is hiring RIDS Brothers Car Service.

The CCMCC also operates a multifaceted program for children ages 0 to 3 who qualify for special education services. This program offers classes and training that use innovative approaches in a structured and positive environment to help each student meet the goals and objectives of their Individual Education Plan (IEP). The CCMCC is dedicated to providing public access to the ADA to all county facilities, programs, and services whenever possible. This ensures that all students, regardless of disability, have access to the same educational opportunities. The CCMCC is committed to providing an inclusive learning environment for all students.
