We are excited to announce that Governor Murphy has included another $2 million in the Fiscal Year 2023 NJ State Budget for Computer Science.    If approved, this brings the total grants for Computer Science education under Governor Murphy to $6.8 million.
Here is the wording from page 188:
The amount hereinabove appropriated for the K--12 Computer Science Education Initiative shall be used exclusively to support approved applications for the expansion and support of professional development of K--12 computer science teachers, and for advanced computer science course offerings as determined by the Commissioner of Education based on a district’s demonstration of its readiness to implement such a program, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting  
This must pass the legislature before being reaching the Governor's desk for signature.

If you would like to testify at the legislative hearing (written or verbal) use this link to register.   The hearings will be virtual.
