South Coast Educational Collaborative conducts education programs and services that complement and strengthen the school programs of member districts and increases educational opportunities for all children. Through collaborative efforts, cost efficiencies and program effectiveness are maximized. We believe that all human beings are capable of learning throughout their lives. The ultimate goal at SCEC is for students to participate and contribute as fully as possible in the communities in which they live. The focus of all members of the SCEC community is on teaching and learning with continuous improvement of the conditions necessary for optimal teaching and learning to occur. Mutual respect and collaboration are expected and infused into all working partnerships.
