Projects and Programs

Support Local Change

Education is an inherently local enterprise, and school districts are the unit of change for ensuring that CS is implemented with rigor, inclusion, and sustainability goals.

Projects:

  • SCRIPT - resources and process to aid school systems and local education agencies in strategic planning for CS education.
  • CS Visions - research project to define the values that drive K-12 CS adoption and can be aligned with the design process
  • Expanding Computing Education Pathways  - working group of 23 states and Puerto Rico to broaden participation through state policy in computing through curriculum alignment, defining K-20 pathways, and teacher preparation
  • Office Hours - CSforALL members can schedule opportunities to receive consultation and support from the CSforALL team
  • Supporting NYC CS4ALL - CSforALL grew out of CSNYC and still supports the NYC CS4ALL programs and implementation
