An inspiring Saturday with high school coders in Oakland

This past Saturday, we had the pleasure of participating in Oakland Hacks, a hackathon for high school students from all around the Bay Area, hosted by Oakland Technical High School. (For those who don't know, a hackathon is an event where a group of people get together and break into groups to "hack" or code a project together over the course of a day or two, with prizes often handed out at the end of the event)

Introducing the Chalk Schools community

One of the driving forces behind what we do at Chalk Schools is our commitment to working with our local communities to make a positive impact. Many of our customers are public schools and districts, which makes sense given 76% of K-12 schools in the U.S. are public institutions. Beyond that, a community of our own is beginning to form: our inspired, driven, and passionate customers who are leading the charge to help their schools and districts run at their best.
