CSTA New Jersey News
2022 is a big year for Computer Science in NJ, with the implementation of the NJ CS Standards in September.   All one million K-8 students will be required to learn CS and all high schools will be required to offer CS.
Mayra Bachrach is the NJDOE Computer Science Coordinator and a great resource.   If you have questions about computer science education or the implementation of the CS standards, you can send emails to ComputerScience@doe.nj.gov
The NJDOE standards department recently up their Computer Science website with some resources, links and definitions.
We look forward to continues collaboration with NJDOE as we implement the NJ Computer Science Action Plan to ensure all students have access to equitable and quality computer science education.
Stay well
State Funded Programs in Support of Computer Science Education

State funded programs have been established at four New Jersey institutions of higher education to provide
computer science professional learning, support the implementation of the 2020 New Jersey Student Learning
Standards in Computer Science (NJSLS-CS), and promote the expansion of K-12 computer science education.
School districts and schools are encouraged to make use of the services and resources available.
Hi all,
Just had a conversation with Code.org.   Excited to share that New Jersey has the 5th highest participation rate of any state on the number of CS emails to the Governor.  
Those states ahead of us started 2 days ago, we started 4 hours ago!!    NJ Rocks!
