Thank you for visiting the Stanislaus County Office of Education (SCOE) Web site and reviewing our privacy and web publishing policies. We collect no personal information about you unless you choose to provide that information to SCOE. Some of our Web pages (such as conference & training registration forms, information-request forms, and other forms) let you voluntarily submit personal information. In those cases, every attempt is made to protect your privacy. SCOE cannot, however, provide any guarantees as to the absolute security of the information submitted on web forms. All submitted information is used only for the expressed purposes for which it is intended.

Non-Personal Information

If you visit us and do nothing more than browse the site, read pages or download information, the site will automatically record some general information about visitors. For example:

  • The type of browser (such as Chrome, Internet Explorer and Firefox).
  • The date and time visitors came to our site, and the Web pages that visited on our site.
  • The address of the previous website if linked to us from another website.
  • The country from which visitors are going to our website.

We use this information for statistical analysis and to help make the Stancoe.org site more useful to visitors. This tracking system does not record information about individuals.

Accessibility Resources 

SCOE pledges to provide information on this website that is relevant and timely, as is maintaining the highest standards of accessibility. SCOE has fully embraced the latest web content accessibility guidelines, known as WCAG 2.0, which were established by the World Wide Web Consortium, an international community with a shared vision for Web accessibility. WCAG 2.0 covers a wide range of recommendations to make Web content more accessible for individuals with disabilities, including those experiencing blindness/low vision, hearing loss, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, limited movement and photosensitivity. These carefully crafted guidelines enhance the experience for all users. As we develop new content for SCOE, we regularly check accessibility reports to meet or exceed requirements under Accessibility Resources.

Social Media Policy

Official SCOE social media sites, including those on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, have been created and maintained to provide educational information, resources and links of interest to the students, parents, community and staff of SCOE. All social media postings shall meet SCOE's Social Media Protocol of branding and professionalism and are subject to review, revision or removal. ​

Note to Parents-Guardians:
We at SCOE have provided the Stancoe.org Web site for the benefit and enjoyment of users, and to assist them in conducting research on the Web. Please take note that because of the nature of the Internet, and the World Wide Web, it is still possible to access a series of links that may take one to almost anywhere. In other words, although we make effort to supply appropriate material and links on this page, parents or guardians should supervise children while they surf the Web.

Site Security

For security purposes and to make sure this service remains available to all users, we use special software programs for monitoring network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information or otherwise to cause damage to this government computer system.

These programs collect no information that would directly identify individuals, but they do collect information that could help SCOE identify someone attempting to tamper with this Web site.

Users of this system should understand that all activities may be monitored and recorded. Anyone using this system expressly consents to such monitoring. WARNING: If such monitoring reveals possible evidence of criminal activity, monitoring records may be provided to law enforcement officials.

Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, we make no other attempts to identify individual users or their usage habits. We only use raw monitoring data logs for determining trends in usage patterns and in diagnosing system problems.
