The Trinity County Office of Education (TCOE) is a member of the Shasta-Tehama-Trinity Adult Education Consortium which serves all of Trinity County along with Shasta and Tehama Counties.

TCOE, in partnership with our local high school district’s adult education programs, offers services in the following areas:

  1. Basic skills, High School diploma or high school equivalency tests
  2. Citizenship, English as a second language
  3. Entry/Re-entry into the workforce
  4. Adult programs designed to develop knowledge and skills to assist elementary and high school children succeed academically in school
  5. Adults with disabilities programs
  6. Short term career education programs
  7. Pre-apprenticeship programs and activities

The goal of the Shasta-Tehama-Trinity Adult Education Consortium is to better serve the needs of adult learners (18+ years old) and to create an educational or career path for adults so that they can grow both personally and financially.

TCOE understands the importance of offering adult education classes that assist parents in helping their children with school. TCOE’s Adult Learning Center offers parenting classes using the Love & Logic philosophy. Studies have shown that children who are supported by their parents, families, mentors, or guardians are more likely to be successful in school. These classes also teach parents ways in which they can help their children with school subjects. The classes also offer information on how to help children be better students, when and how to help children with homework, and where to find tutoring help. They offer information on other activities which help children do well in school. They teach parents how to talk with and work with teachers and school staff, and also teach parents ways they can help their children with test taking.

Trinity County Adult Learning also offers the General Education Diploma (GED) and the High School Equivalency Test (HiSet) at TCOE and or through our mobile test center. We offer over 70 Information Technology Tests. Our Learning Center can also help adults connect with our local high schools in order to get a high school diploma. TCOE works with adult education programs at Trinity High School, Hayfork High School and Southern Trinity High School.

Trinity County Adult Learning Center is focused on serving adult learners in Trinity County by helping them reach their educational and career dreams.  In addition to offering parenting classes, high school equivalency and technology tests, TCOE can also help adults who want to continue their education or increase their career skills through our partnership with Shasta College. For more information on the programs offered through the Shasta-Tehama-Trinity Adult Education Consortium, please visit: https://better.jobs.

Why are Free and Reduced-Price Lunch Applications Important?

There are two reasons why completing these applications for your child/ren’s school is important. One reason is the more obvious one: your child/ren may qualify for breakfast as well as lunch free of charge, or you may only have to pay a reduced amount. Meals at school can insure that all students get nutritious food each day. Research indicates that kids who eat regular, healthy meals will do better in school than those who do not. Also, we all know how hard mornings can be getting kids ready for school. Being able to take “pack a lunch” off the list in the morning can be convenient. You may be surprised to learn that the majority of students at every school in our county is eligible to receive either a free or a reduced-price lunch.

Helping Your Child Recover from Trauma

Children may be experiencing distress related to events associated with the recent fires. The most important thing you can do in times of trauma is to help your child feel safe and protected. This is the first step in the recovery process. Your presence is probably the single most important factor in helping a child recover in a healthy way from a disturbing event.

“Trauma” is what the person experiences inside, so one child may be experiencing traumatic stress while another child may not. Adults should carefully watch for behavioral changes that can provide clues into what the child is experiencing. There are lists of possible symptoms to watch for online, but here are a few:

The Importance of Early Childhood Education

Written by Fabio Robles, Ph.D. - Assistant Superintendent

Studies show that high-quality education early in a child’s life leads to success later in school and at work. Children taught at an early age are able to get along well with others, need little help with learning in school, get better grades, and are able to pay attention longer. Research also shows that young children enrolled in pre-school programs usually graduate from high school, attend college, have fewer behavioral problems, and do not become involved with crime in their teenage and young adult years.

Written by Anthony Rebelo, Ph.D - Selpa Director / Assistant Superintendent

As we move through the holiday break and into the second half of the school year, we wanted to take a moment to remind everyone how important attendance is in our children’s education. Attendance can sometimes sneak up on us, but consider this fact: A student who misses just two days of school per month would be considered chronically absent or “truant” over the course of a school year. This is important because studies indicate that beginning as early as first grade, students who are chronically absent (missing ten percent of the school year or more which equals just 19 days each year) are much more likely to become high school dropouts.

This is the first time for our new column. Each month we will publish what we hope is interesting and useful information about the role of our office, the services we provide, and about education topics in general - especially as they pertain to Trinity County. This month the report below is from our school nursing department on requirements for student admission to schools. Because our schools do not have the funding to support their own school nurses, we provide nursing services to all districts in our county.
