Seeds of Partnership is a project funded by the California Department of Education (CDE), Special Education Division (SED) and is under the auspices of the Sacramento County Office of Education. We assist the CDE, SED in providing technical assistance as part of the Statewide System of Support within initiatives and activities of the State Performance Plan (SPP) related to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Indicators. This project supports educators, administrators, department of education staff, parent center directors/staff, technical assistance partners, families, and young adults with disabilities.
We provide and share professional learning, support tools, and parent and professional resources, as well as collaborate with regional, state, and national partners in the areas of family engagement, compliance and improvement monitoring, alternative dispute resolution, early learning, youth leadership/self advocacy. We also provide statewide support and coordinated technical assistance to the Family Empowerment Centers and Disability Council.
