Commitment to Action

Launching Students into Computer Science Majors and Careers

Commitment by

The National Science Foundation, The College Board

In 2013, The College Board and The National Science Foundation committed to developing and implementing a professional development program that will enable educators to teach CS Principles, a new Advanced Placement (AP) Computer Science (CS) course. By 2017, this commitment will provide 5,000 teachers with the training and support they will need to prepare their students for success with the CS Principles exam and as a result, develop the computational skills - the ability to create and apply computational approaches in problem solving - that will be essential for the jobs of the future.
