  • MCOE is the lead agency for Region 7 ( Merced, Madera, Mariposa, Fresno, Tulare and Kings county) and this effort is coordinated by Cristina Corchado.

  • Diana Decker and Susan Thomas, Special Education Leads, provide professional development in inclusive practices. CDE/Special Education division committed these resources to insure that children with disabilities are full participants in inclusive preschool settings and that training will focus on the needs of ALL children.
