LCPS Expands Commitment to Computer Science Instruction


Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) announced a commitment to expanding computer science instruction for its students at the second annual CSforALL Summit held recently in Detroit.

LCPS, in partnership with CodeVA and the Virginia Department of Education, will establish an elementary computer science coaches professional learning team that will train at least 50 elementary teachers and create at least 24 K-5 curricular resources.  LCPS also will create a strategic action plan to implement K-12 computer science standards for the school division.

The CSforALL Summit is an annual gathering of more than 400 stakeholders, including educators, school districts and representatives from government, industry, higher education and the non-profit sector.  This year’s gathering took place on the campus of Wayne State University. 

A total of 200 organizations made commitments like the one made by LCPS. Commitments center on addressing equity for underrepresented students, computer science accessibility for students with disabilities, cybersecurity education and evidence-based computer science education pathways.
