morse_adams_speakerSchool districts provide the essential infrastructure that supports K12 education—including equity-driven efforts such as broadening participation in computer science.

CS-CaVE district partners include San Diego Unified School District, Sweetwater Union High School District, and Vista Unified School District. Both San Diego and Sweetwater also participated ComPASS (Computing for All Students’ Success), another CS10K project hosted by UC San Diego and San Diego Supercomputer Center and funded by the National Science Foundation.

District partners achieved great success during the first year of CS-CaVE by

  • rapidly increasing teacher capacity (training a total of 71 teachers to teach CS);
  • offering 27 CS Principles classes in 19 high schools across the three districts;
  • expanding their CS programs beyond high school courses, now offering 18 new classes at 12 middle schools; planning for further expansions of both high and middle school classes in 2016-17.
