The Learning Resource Display Center

The Learning Resource Display Center (LRDC) houses copies of textbooks that have been either adopted or are under review by the California Department of Education for all subject areas in Grades K-8.

Educators from local schools may visit the LRDC to review adopted textbooks in order to help determine which textbooks should be used in their district.

During times of textbook review, the general public is strongly encouraged to visit the LRDC and evaluate which instructional materials up for consideration best represent the California school curriculum and how it should be presented to public school students statewide.

You can find more information about the LRDC here
