CS4NorCal: Call to Action for Education Leaders

Join the Small School District Association as we design a high-quality implementation model to bring computer science pathways to students in rural communities.

Tell the education leaders in your community how CS4NorCal can impact your districts and schools. Give the youth in your region the opportunity to access high-demand, high-wage careers in computer science and STEM fields.
