What is the CA Rural Ed Network?

The Network is formed by an Executive Team, a Steering Committee, an Advisory Council and a team of Researchers. All of these members represent and advocate for Rural California through their roles at the CA Dept. of Education, universities, state and community colleges, county offices of education and rural districts.
Utilizing the diverse expertise of its members, the CA Rural Ed Network also provides its members access to a Rural Ed Resource Bank. Our Resource Bank provides educators with research and articles to support best practices in rural schools. We will release a new website in September 2019 that will include the Resource Bank and other links for educators to make connections with rural colleagues across the state.
