Reimagining CS Pathways

The Reimagining CS Pathways Project will convene representatives from K-12 ed, higher ed, and industry in the U.S. to develop community definitions of (1) what CS content is essential for all high school graduates and (2) pathways for continued CS learning. We aim to:

  • Make recommendations for revisions to CSTA K-12 Standards and AP CS courses
  • Clarify alignment of and develop model pathways for CS courses, including content that fulfills a high school graduation requirement, introductory post-secondary CS courses, and AP CS courses

This page is intended to compile information for convening participants. Please do not share this information publicly.

Convening #3


Refine products, and develop recommendations for moving towards our collective vision.

  • Confirm/refine findings from Convenings #1 (foundational content) and #2 (content progressions + implementation pathways).
  • Identify recommendations for the upcoming CSTA K-12 Standards revision process, future AP coursework revisions, and other key audiences.


Please review the Convening #2 Summary Report and provide feedback (use comment feature) on the draft content progressions and implementation pathways.

Please review the Convening #1 Summary Report to refresh your memory or catch up on what we identified as foundational high school CS content.

If you would like to learn about your fellow participants ahead of the convening, you can access the participant directory at the bottom of this page.


Participants will travel to Portland, OR on Monday, March 18. They will travel home or to SIGCSE after 3:00 pm PT on Wednesday, March 20.
