Digitally enhanced education – a broad term related to the use of technology in education – was identified as one of three key aspects of California’s innovation ‘ecosystem’ by CCST’s multifaceted “Innovate to Innovation” project, initiated in 2010. This project follows on a 2011 CCST white paper and a 2010 Innovate to Innovation report on digital education, providing updated information on the rapidly evolving state of digital education in California and the nation as a whole.

This project was prepared in two volumes. Volume 1 examines digital education programs in California and related policy discussions and assessments released during 2011-12. This document (Volume 2) identifies and documents the major statutory and regulatory requirements governing California’s use and applications of digital education for teaching and learning in K-12 schools. The document includes:

  • California Education Codes
  • California Codes of Regulations (offering administrative regulations/interpretations of state law)
  • Letters from the California Department of Education issued in response to questions regarding current law governing online education.
