Mission: CSforALL is a hub for the national Computer Science for All movement, which works to enable all students in grades K-12 to achieve computer science literacy as an integral part of their educational experience.
Leadership: The CSforALL team has deep cross-functional expertise in CS education that includes policy work at the local, state, and national levels, school and district innovation, teaching, and research. The CSforALL Consortium was launched in September 2016 with the advisement and support of a steering committee that included the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM), the College Board, the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), and the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT).
Strategy: CSforALL sets a collective agenda together with our membership of content providers, education associations, researchers, and supporters to help schools and districts provide all students with rigorous K-12 computer science education. We serve as a platform for connecting diverse stakeholders, providing support to new and developing initiatives, tracking and sharing progress, and communicating about the work to local and national audiences.
The CSforALL Movement
Computer Science for All is a bold initiative to empower all US students from kindergarten through high school to learn computer science (CS) and be equipped with the computational thinking skills they need to be creators in the digital economy, not just consumers, and to be active citizens in our technology-driven world. Our economy is rapidly shifting, and educators, policy makers, families, and business leaders are increasingly recognizing that CS is a “new basic” skill necessary for economic opportunity and social mobility.
CSforALL builds on efforts already being led by parents, teachers, school districts, states, and private sector leaders from across the country.
Supporters of CSforALL
In 2018, CSforALL and SFE (Siegel Family Endowment) initiated an innovative partnership designed to accelerate CSforALL’s ability to pursue their work on a national scale and broaden their impact. SFE provides substantial funding for CSforALL’s operating expenses, allowing the team to focus on projects most directly related to achieving our mission. Our unique affiliation allows CSforALL to remain an independent 501(c)(3) organization, and to collaborate with SFE on strategic initiatives and areas of overlap.
The initial funding for CSforALL was provided through grant #1645894 by the National Science Foundation. Any opinions, findings, or conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of CSforALL and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.
