The Edmonds School District received a $59,000 grant to improve access to computer science, including offering more such classes at the high school level.
The state Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction recently awarded nearly $1 million in grants to help train teachers; provide and upgrade technology; and expand access to girls, students from underrepresented populations and communities who have historically been underserved.
The grants required matching funds. Locally, TEALS and Code.org provided money for the Edmonds project.
A local levy provides ongoing support for technology equipment and tools. The grant and matching funds will focus on updating teacher training and instruction to keep pace with this quickly evolving field.
