From the founding of CCCOER in California in 2007 to a statewide requirement that colleges and universities identify OER classes in class schedules by 2018, California has long been involved in OER. California Community Colleges (CCCs) serve 2.5 million students, over 30% of all community college students in the US, or 11% of all US undergraduates, so the impact of OER work in California can be significant.

In 2016, the California legislature allocated funding to create Zero Textbook Cost degrees and certificates in California Community Colleges. Up to 25 CCCs will be funded to develop ZTC degrees and certificates. The first round of grants was awarded in January 2017; a second round will be awarded in January 2018. Coordinators of overall state efforts will share the current status of statewide efforts and solicit input from the field on moving forward.
