For the 13th year running, the Stanislaus County Office of Education (SCOE) and the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Region VII will partner to honor outstanding classified (non-supervisory) education employees in Stanislaus County. Called “Employees Making a Difference,” school districts throughout the county selected their own honorees and forwarded nominations to SCOE.  Twenty-eight outstanding classified staff will be honored at a special reception at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 22nd, at the Martin G.

Student teams from local high schools will have their day in court soon.  The annual Stanislaus County Mock Trials event is set to take place at 5:15 PM on February 6, 11 & 13 at the Stanislaus County Courthouse, 800 11th Street, Modesto.  The championship round between the top two teams will be held on February 18 at 4:00 PM at the Martin G.
