In December 2007, the California Student Aid Commission funded an effort to re-establish Cal-SOAP consortium services in Solano county. The Solano County Educational Consortium (SCEC) was established by a partnership with Solano county school districts, community-based organizations and local colleges and universities to help Solano county youth pursue and prepare for college. Through this partnership, the Solano County Educational Consortium program professional staff and undergraduate student staff are able to provide services to Solano county students and families and to bring the resources and support of our consortium partners. SCEC staff will help Solano students realize their college dreams and increase academic engagement across students, families, and community members.
