Regional Assessment Network

Map of California and regional contact information for the Regional Assessment Network (RAN).

The County Office of Education (COE) RAN members represent a sub-committee of the Curriculum and Instruction Steering Committee (CISC) of the County Superintendents Association. The purpose of RAN is to develop a knowledge and understanding about California’s assessment and accountability systems by facilitating communication between the California Department of Education (CDE) and COEs, which represent the schools, districts, and county offices in their region.

Map of regional assessment network as outlined in the table below.

The decision about whom to appoint as an official COE RAN member is a regional decision, not determined by the CDE. For more information about RAN, contact your regional representative listed below.

Many regions have created local assessment networks that support assessment coordinators in their work. These networks allow coordinators a place to connect with other local coordinators, receive updates, discuss what is new in the assessment landscape, or share best practices. For more information about local assessment networks, see the list below of networks who have submitted their information to the CDE. If you have a local assessment network you would like added to this web page, please contact Deborah Baumgartner at dbaumgartner@cde.ca.gov.
