K-12 School/District Pledge

Our economy is rapidly shifting, and families, educators and business leaders are increasingly recognizing that computer science (CS) is a “new basic” skill necessary for economic opportunity and social mobility in a world driven by software.

CSforALL is calling on every school principal and district superintendent in America to join in its commitment to support the goals of expanding access to CS by signing the CSforALL Pledge. CSforALL will continue to update the pledge list monthly.

Schools Signing the CSforALL K-12 School/District Pledge

These 77 districts and 303 schools – together representing a total of 3343 schools, across 39 states  have signed the CSforALL pledge to support the expansion of Computer Science to every K12 student in the United States.

These schools and districts pledge to: support professional development for CS teachers, administrators, and guidance counselors; encourage all students to learn CS; offer a variety of opportunities throughout their grade levels for CS learning; and assign a primary point of contact in their school or district for CS education.
