The current CSTA K-12 Standards were published in 2017, and much has changed since then regarding research, implementation, technological advances, and standards adoption by states. As such, CSTA has begun the process of revising the CSTA K-12 Standards with an anticipated launch of updated standards in summer 2026. Community involvement in this process is essential to its success, and CSTA is currently accepting applications from individuals interested in serving as writers, advisors, and/or reviewers during the revision process.

Responsibilities will formally begin in September 2024. Educators that are selected for the writing team will receive a stipend for their full and active participation. Visit the CSTA K-12 Standards Revision webpage for additional information and to apply. Those interested in being involved should complete the application by Monday, June 17. Applicants will be notified of selection status by Friday, July 5. 

 
If you are a member of CSTA then you've received several emails for this.  However, if you've missed them, here's the information.
 
Please complete this membership and chapter feedback survey ASAP to help CSTA grow and thrive.

If you are a member of a CSTA chapter, you'll also be asked to give some feedback on your chapter. Chapters are at the heart of what CSTA strives to achieve — building local communities amongst CS teachers and supporting their ongoing professional development. 

The information gathered will support CSTA as well as your Chapter Leaders in setting goals and planning for activities in the 2024-25 school year. CSTA will only share aggregate data with Chapter Leaders and staff members; responses will be anonymous and not linked to specific members. We anticipate it will take 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

We know you've been inundated with emails, and we appreciate and value your time. We understand that this has been the most challenging couple of years teachers have ever faced, and we are grateful for all that you have done for your students, for your chapter, and in support of CS education. 

To thank you for your time, the first 1,000 CSTA members who complete this survey will receive a $10 Amazon gift card. We appreciate your willingness to help support CSTA and your local chapter.

Please complete the survey in the next two weeks, using the link below, by May 27, 2024.
