Teachers Corri-Anne Burgess at Kearny SCT, Jim Jenkins at Crawford, and Ray Kinne at San Diego Business have earned the first College Board AP® Computer Science Female Diversity Award for achieving high female representation in AP Computer Science Principles.
Out of more than 18,000 schools worldwide that offer AP courses, only 490 schools earned the AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award for AP Computer Science Principles.
The AP Computer Science Principles course launch in 2016 was the largest in College Board history. AP Computer Science Principles has promoted the growth of computer sciece in high schools by 135% since 2016, broadening STEM career opportunities for more students. San Diego Unified, through the College, Career and Technical Education Department joined this effort in conjunction with UCSD through the CS-CaVE grant, which provided training and support. SDUSD has ICT pathways from middle school to high school, with courses such as Game Design, GIS, Web Design, and Cybersecurity, as well as AP CS A and AP Computer Science Principles.
For more information about AP Computer Science Principles and ICT pathways in our district, please contact Gail Lake in the Office of College, Career, and Technical Education.
