Who do we serve?
RCOTA proudly serves students throughout Riverside County. We serve students in Special Education, Alternative Education, Career and Technical Education, Pre-school, Head Start, Migrant Head Start, and Migrant Education programs. Included in our unit are Speech Pathologists, Nurses, Visual Itinerant Teachers, Audiologists, Deaf and Hard of Hearing Teachers, Specialists for Orientation and Mobility, Orthopedic Impairment, and Autism all serving students throughout Riverside County. What do we believe? We believe that all students have the human and civil right to a quality public education that develops their potential, independence, and character. We believe that public education is vital to build respect, dignity, and equality of every individual so that they feel they can reach the gateway to opportunity. We believe that individuals are strengthened when they advocate collectively and collaborate professionally. We believe partnerships with parents, families, communities, and other stakeholders are essential to a quality public education and student success.
