CS4NorCal is a unique 5-year regional research and innovation project sponsored by the California Small School Districts' Association (SSDA) to create K-12 computer science pathways in small rural schools in 6 northern California counties: Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Plumas, Shasta and Siskiyou. 

Through 2024-2025, CS4NorCal is an opportunity for education leaders from county offices of education, districts and schools to investigate and design implementation models to integrate the 2018 state Computer Science standards into their educational programs and provide students with access to a core subject of a well-rounded education.
Since it is a five year program, schools may be ready to jump on right away or may be interested to join a year, two or three down the road. If you think there may be interest at any point in time during the life of the grant, I'd encourage your school to fill out the interest survey!

There is no cost to participate in the grant; participating teachers will receive 10 to 20 days of compensated professional learning and access to nationally validated computer science curriculum.

Have Questions? 

Additional information about CS4NorCal can be found by going to the CS4NorCal website: www.cs4norcal.org or CS4NorCal’s FAQs. 

This is an exciting opportunity to prepare our students for high-wage, high-demand Computer Science and STEM careers.
