CTCSTA Members Attend CT Education Committee Hearing

Members of the CTCSTA visited the Education Committee for the public hearing on February 25, 2015 regarding the bill proposing CS in the middle school curriculum. View the proposed bill here. CTCSTA President Chinma Uche, CTCSTA Secretary Pauline Lake, and CTCSTA Treasurer James Veseskis joined James Maroney to give their testimony on why Computer Science and computer programming should be made part of the middle school curriculum. Additional members who could not be present submitted their testimonies online.

Breaking News James Maroney joined us at CTCSTA meeting in June 2015 to announce that the proposed bill had passed. Public Act 15-94 will be implemented beginning in July 2016. Public CT middle schools will be required to include “computer programming” in their curriculum.

CTCSTA Members Bring Petition to the Commissioner of the CT State Board of Education

petition1

On December 20, 2013, Trinity Professor Ralph Morelli, CCSU Professor Bradley Kjell, CTCSTA President Chinma Uche, and Pauline Lake brought a petition to the Commissioner of the CT State Board of Education to make computer science satisfy existing high school graduation requirements for math or science.


Take Action!

Sign the petition to have CS satisfy CT graduation requirements.

Congratulations to former State Rep James Maroney for sponsoring SB 962 which was signed into law by Governor Dannel Malloy as Public Act 15-94 on June 23 and to Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty for sponsoring H.R. 1020 which was signed into law by President Obama on October 7, 2015.  Ask your districts how they are reflecting these in their planning.  Encourage them to provide CS for all K-12 students.

Talk to your local K-5 school about bringing Computer Science to the school. Tell your administrators and teachers to sign up for free workshops through Code.org.
