About CRLP

The CRLP's Mission

The mission of the California Reading & Literature Project (CRLP) is to provide high quality, standards-based professional development in reading and language instruction to help ensure that every California student PreK-12 achieves the highest standards of academic performance. Through collaborative partnerships with schools and districts, CRLP supports and sustains continuous academic growth for all students, Pre-K through 12th grade.

CRLP accomplishes this by:​

The CRLP is part of the California Subject Matter Project (CSMP), administered by the University of California Office of the President (UCOP) and hosted by regional campuses of the University of California, California State Universities, and independent California colleges. The CRLP at UC Santa Cruz is housed within the Educational Partnership Center.
