The Alabama Legislature is considering legislation that would expand computer science education to all children in Alabama schools (House Bill 216). This bill would:
- Expand computer science courses to all K-12 public schools in the state
- Provide funding for professional development for K-12 computer science teachers
- Provide a computer science specialist in the State Department of Education, and
- Provide multiple computer science certification pathways for both current teachers and computer science experts to become certified to teach in our schools.
This legislation will ensure Alabama’s public schools are providing the computer science education students need to enter a changing workforce and make Alabama a national leader in computer science education. This bill passed the Alabama House of Representatives on May 2, 2019, and is now being considered by the Alabama Senate. Please contact your state senator and tell them to VOTE YES on HB 216!
