Style Manual

The California Department of Education Style Manual is the reference for CDE staff to use when preparing documents for publication, whether those documents will be posted online, printed, or both.

The Style Manual addresses issues such as language usage and style, grammar, source citation, and others. It is meant to help CDE staff members plan, organize, and prepare a manuscript in a form that is clear, accurate, and that will require a minimum of editing and rewriting before it is published.
