The Solano County Office of Education (SCOE) wants to ensure even the youngest learners have the tools needed for education.

The agency has partnered with the First 5 Solano Commission and Solano County Library Literacy Services to provide 5,500 backpacks filled with school supplies to kindergartners and transitional kindergartners at Solano public schools.

The backpacks are filled with everything a child needs for learning, including crayons, pencils, paper, and cards to help youngsters learn letter sounds and sight words. Unit counters, a dry-erase board and markers are also included in the backpacks to support virtual learning at home.

Courtesy of Solano County Library and California State Library, the bags also include children’s books. Handouts for parents regarding screen time, library services and the Triple P parenting program can also be found in the backpacks.

The bags are intended to serve as a mid-year support for teachers, students and their families as they continue to experience distance learning, officials wrote in a news release. The bags are being distributed to school districts and charter schools throughout the county, which in turn will be distributed to families throughout Solano.
