Santa Barbara High Computer Science Academy Receives $20K Hutton Parker Foundation Grant

Santa Barbara High School’s Computer Science Academy is pleased to announce that it has received a $20,000 grant from the Hutton Parker Foundation.

The Hutton Parker Foundation supports charitable, scientific, literary and educational organizations. Their unique Core Support Program provides strategic general operating support 

leading to increased capacity and sustainability for organizations.

The SBHS Computer Science Academy’s first two years of offerings as a full-fledged academy have demonstrated the value and importance of this educational pathway.

The Core Support grant from the Hutton Parker Foundation will aid in the Academy’s transition from startup to a sustainable, long-term component of our community’s educational offerings.

“We are very pleased with this grant and thankful to the Hutton Parker Foundation. It comes at a perfect time for us as we continue to grow and look more towards streamlining our operations,” Academy Director Paul Muhl said.

With this generous gift from the Hutton Parker Foundation, the SBHS Computer Science Academy will continue to expose a diverse cross section of SBHS students to computer science and computer-related careers through a series of engaging courses, extracurricular activities and outreach events, so that graduates will have a core literacy in Computer Science that provides broad opportunities for pursuit of post-secondary education and as members of the 21st Century workforce.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
