Mineola is proud to have been acknowledged by President Obama in his final State of the Union address. As you may know, the address announced a “computer science for all” initiative in which the president would like to make computer science curriculum available to every American student. The remarkable work Mineola has done with technology received a direct mention from the White House and in the president’s speech.

Mineola was listed among 25 districts that offer expanded computer science opportunities for students. It was also the only district in New York State to receive a mention.

The mention was made possible through the district’s involvement in the League of Innovative Schools and Digital Promise, as well as a paragraph that Superintendent of Schools Michael P. Nagler submitted to the White House regarding the district’s kidOYO platform and K-12 coding initiative.
