Granite School District
Computer Science for All
Granite School District has developed a team of representatives from the Curriculum and Instruction Department, Educational Technology Department, and Career and Techincal Education Department to establish a district-wide collaborative focus on developing and implementing a computer science education program that will be accessible to all students.
This site will provide access and information about the Granite proposal and implementation process throughout the four-year grant period (2020-2021 through 2023-2024).

Utah Computer Science Education Master Plan
“Computer science is not only important for the tech sector, but for almost all industries, including agriculture, transportation, healthcare, education, and financial services. In 2019, there are more than 5,000 open computing jobs in Utah—jobs that come with an average salary of over $81,000, nearly double the state’s average salary. But there are not enough qualified workers in Utah to fill many of these positions and the skills gap is continuing to widen. Only 16 percent of Utah’s high schools offer intermediate and advanced computer science. An important aspect of educating and training our future entrepreneurs and innovators is that equitable access to CS has to begin in the K-12 space. The earlier students are presented with quality CS courses, the better chance they have of closing the opportunity gap. Students who are exposed to computer science during their early years of education are much more likely to choose it as a major. Women are 10 times more likely to get a degree in computer science if they take an AP class in the subject, and minorities are seven times more likely if they do the same (Code.org). ” — Utah Computer Science Education Master Plan
