CEISMC is the Code.org Regional Partner for the State of Georgia. The goals of our partnership are to:

  • Establish partnerships with local districts and schools to prepare K-12 teachers to lead effective computer science classrooms.
  • Organize and host quality, local workshops for districts and schools implementing Code.org’s K-12 programs, with Code.org-accredited facilitators.
  • Support, grow, and sustain the local community of K-12 computer science educators.
  • Remove barriers to achieving equity in K-12 CS Education.
COVID-19 Update: We hope you and your loved ones are all well and healthy at this difficult time. We are offering a virtual online experience during the week of July 19 - July 23, 2021. The four school-year sessions for CSD and CSP will include virtual and in-person options.
