California Learning Resource Network (CLRN)


In December of 1999, the California Department of Education awarded the SETS (Statewide Education Technology Services) Learning Resource contract to Stanislaus County Office of Education as LEA (Local Education Agency), with partner county offices of education in Humboldt, Kings, Orange, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, and San Diego. CLRN provides educators with a “one-stop” resource for critical information needed for the selection of supplemental electronic learning resources aligned to the State Board of Education academic content standards.

California Educators with specific content experience are selected through an application process to act as reviewers once they have completed a rigorous training program. The review process utilizes the State Board of Education approved review criteria which covers three areas: Legal Compliance, Standards Alignment, and Minimum Requirements. Resources on CLRN are approved for Social Content only, resources are NOT state adopted.

CLRN objectives:

  • Identify and review supplemental electronic learning resources such as software, video, and Internet resources.
  • Identify learning units aligned to resources and the state academic content standards.
  • Maintain an interactive web site to provide information about electronic learning resources through an online searchable database and links to state education technology projects and resources.
