District partnership to increase elementary computer science instruction – Daily Republic

By Susan Winlow

A partnership between the Fairfield-Suisun School District and the nonprofit Code.org to increase K-5 computer science instruction and offer professional development, support and curriculum will take effect in September, the school district recently announced.

Code.org is “dedicated to expanding computer science education by making it available in more schools and increasing participation by women and minorities,” a press release by Melissa Farrar, the assistant director of professional development and educational technology, stated.

The vision of both organizations is that every child in every school will have access to computer science education and that computer science should be part of the core curriculum alone with STEM courses – science, technology, engineering and math.
