The K12HSN is a state program which works in conjunction with several other state initiatives to support technology for improved teaching and learning.

The administration of K-12 Education Technology in California is decentralized with several small programs administered by the state and most initiatives contracted to County Offices of Education. The State Board of Education sets policy direction for the selection of online curricular resources and strongly encourages online professional development efforts to ensure programs focus on state's standards.

The California State Department of Education has established the Education Technology Office to administer programs and coordinate the contracted initiatives. A primary focus of the unit is to guide the state department's education technology policies and initiatives and facilitate federally funded technology efforts in the state.
