The Pennsylvania Department of Education awarded Pittsburgh Public Schools (PPS) with the PA Smart Advancing Grant to expand access to Computer Science (CS) and STEM education. The total award amount is $479,202.

With grant dollars, Pittsburgh Public Schools will partner with the Allegheny Intermediate Unit and Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science on a 16-school pilot program to develop a PreK-12 vertical approach to CS education.

“The PA Smart Advancing Grant will make computer science and STEM learning opportunities accessible to all Pittsburgh Public Schools students and diversify the repertoire of our teachers to include age-appropriate computer science content, skills, and instruction,” said Dr. Anthony Hamlet, Superintendent. “We would like to thank the PA Department of Education and Acting Secretary Noe Ortega for the support.”

Well most people have now gotten 3 stimulus payments. People have been able to stay on unemployment over a year, getting more then double what they normally would. And people have been allowed to not pay their rent. And there is now talk about a 4th stimulus payment. Enough is enough-it is time to make people go back to work! There I said it-make people go back to work! Oh my God how terrible for me to say this. To say people should be working and not taking handouts from the government? What the heck is wrong with me!? I am such a terrible person! How dare me suggest people should be working for their money! How dare me suggest people should pay rent or be evicted! I will say yet another terrible thing-the Corona Virus is no more, it is over! It is now in the same category as the flu or foot fungus. Take an aspirin and get over it, open everything up and get back to every day life. The government had their fun, they controlled our lives with no over sight for over a year, it is time to give us back our rights and let us go about our life as we wish. People can get the vaccine if they want or not get it, what ever they choose. In the last year the government has created a debt that will take generations to pay back. Inflation will…
