Our public school districts are not prioritizing computer science courses nor preparing our teachers to teach those courses. Thus, our K-12 public education system is failing to ensure Texas children can take advantage of our state’s growing 21st century economy.
Coding4TX is a program funded by the KLE Foundation and supported through partnership with community non-profit organizations, universities and numerous technology companies.
Our Mission: Increase access to and participation in Computer Science Education For All Central and South Texas K-12 students during the school day, regardless of their income level, gender, race or resident zip code.
Our Vision: All school districts in the greater Austin, San Antonio and Rio Grande Valley areas will offer a continuous pathway of computer science courses from 5th grade, inclusive of opportunities for industry engagement.
“Computer Science is a liberal art; it’s something that everybody should be exposed to and everyone should have a mastery of to some extent.” – Steve Jobs
