About CSforCA

By 2025, we want all students in California to have access, and engagement in, high-quality computer science education that prepares them for college, career, and community engagement.

Computer Science for California (CSforCA) is a coalition of educators, industry leaders, nonprofit organizations, and higher education institutions  advocating for high quality computer science teaching & learning opportunities in K-12 public schools so that every California student has access, regardless of zip code, race, gender or economic background.

Our Leadership

The CSforCA coalition is led by co-directors, Julie Flapan and Allison Scott, along with five working groups who represent an array of school districts and local education agencies, nonprofit organizations, higher education institutions, advocacy groups, and tech companies.
