Posted on Wednesday, August 14, 2019 at 11:10 am

Colonial Beach High School has been accepted into the 2019-2020 Technology Education and Literacy in Schools Program. “We are investing in our students by partnering with Microsoft Philanthropies TEALS to build and grow our computer science program,” said Superintendent Dashan Turner. There are more than 500,000 open computer science positions without qualified talent to fill them across all industries. Through this program, the school is trying to help assure that the students have access to the necessary education to ensure a successful future for them.

Mr. Cody Christensen will be co-teaching with a volunteer from TEALS Computer Science Foundations: 10020, which is an introduction to Computer Science. This introductory course is designed to cover a variety of topics and will partner with Teals and Cod Virginia curriculum.
