Sandee Kludt recently announced her decision to retire this month from her position as Assistant Superintendent of Special Education and Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) at San Joaquin County Office of Education.
“Sandee has been a champion for special needs children all of her professional life,” said Mick Founts, deputy superintendent. “We have been fortunate to have had her as our Assistant Superintendent of Special Education / SELPA, but more importantly the students, parents, and educational team are all better for having both known her, and benefited from her leadership and vision.”
Prior to being an assistant superintendent, Kludt spent 40 years working within education, as a general and special education teacher, and then special education administrator.
Throughout the years, Kludt has helped advance special education — in particular, by serving the autistic population.
“Autism is an area that I have been involved in for over 15 years,” said Kludt. “It is the fastest growing area in special education and I plan to stay very engaged in serving these children.”
Nonetheless, after a long and productive career, Kludt knows that she will miss many things.
“I will have a hard time saying good-bye to all of the people with whom I work,” she added. “I also will miss the challenge of leadership and the drive that influences and implements programs and procedures that benefit students with autism and all of our students in special education.”
