Who runs the world?! Girls (in computer science)! Rhonda Carpenter-Powell, a computer science teacher and leader, is doing her part to bridge the gender gap in computer science for future generations.

Full Story

I've been extremely pleased with my CodeHS experience. My favorite part is the grading feature. My students have completed 10x as many labs and received 100x better feedback via CodeHS versus any other textbook or platform I have used in the past. - Timothy Hipp, Teacher at WoodWard Academy in College Park, Georgia

“I love the course features: video, quiz, example, and exercises for each lesson. - Advis Wilkerson, Teacher at Creekside High School in Fairburn, Georgia

K-12 Computer Science in Georgia

In 2019, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed Senate Bill 108 which requires all high schools to phase-in computer science classes by the 2024–2025 school year. This new legislation ensures that all students in Georgia have access to rigorous computer science courses and are prepared for the future. View the full Georgia CS Plan here.

To increase investment in computer science across the state, the Georgia General Assembly allocated $750,000 for computer science teacher professional development.
