Contra Costa County Office of Education, in partnership with Code.org, is excited to offer several programs. Our goal is to increase access to Computer Science for all students.

Our vision is that Every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn CS. By increasing access to computer science, especially for women and underrepresented minorities, our children will be prepared for any career, opening doors for future success.

To realize this vision, CCCOE provides workshops, programs, and resources for implementation of CS programs.
