How does this program fit into the NYCDOE’s broader strategy for increasing student access to computer science?

The NYCDOE has a number of programs in place to expand access to computer science, including:

The Software Engineering Pilot (SEP) program is a comprehensive standards-aligned computer science and software engineering education program for grades 6-12. Currently running in 18 schools (9 middle and 9 high schools), SEP provides computer science curriculum, monthly professional development for teachers, ongoing coordination with the tech industry in NYC, and opportunities for students to showcase their work and learn more about the software engineering industry.

The Academy for Software Engineering and the Bronx Academy for Software Engineering are Career and Technical Education (CTE) high schools that focus on preparing students for careers in the software engineering industry.
