Curriculum Leaders | January 2017
Lane ESD District Members, in collaboration with LCC, pursue a Computer Science for High School (CS4HS) Grant offered by Google.
The grant will help increase the number of computer science courses offered at the high school level and improve articulation of CS 160 Orientation to Computer Science with LCC.
Why CS 160?
- It is considered a “gateway” computer science course, and it is based on the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM 060) standards.
- It is one of four required programming courses in the statewide Oregon community college Associate of Science Oregon Transfer in Computer Science degree.
- As a community college block transfer degree, students can transfer all courses to any Oregon community college and public university conferring a CS Baccalaureate Degree without a loss of credit.
- The course can also be part of a CTE Program of Study in Computer Science.
