We have worked with the College Board and have a plan to give affected classrooms a 24-hour extension. See the text below on instructions for how to apply. We will be emailing this same text to all Code.org CSP Teachers.
From roughly 9:00am EST through 12:30 EST, our website experienced intermittent outages for some users. We heard from a number of teachers that this outage prevented their students from accessing or submitting Create Performance Tasks that are on our website. At this point, we believe your students should be able to access their projects. If they can submit this afternoon, they should do that. If they can’t, please use the steps below to ensure your students are given an extension on their projects.
Requesting an Extension
The College Board is working with us to provide a 24-hour extension to students impacted by this issue. For your students to get the extension, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- Your name
- Your school’s name
- Your school’s AI code (if you know it; you can also look up your AI code here)
- Your school’s city and state (if you don’t have the AI code)
We will be sending the College Board a list of impacted classrooms at 4pm EST this afternoon. We will send a second list tomorrow since we expect additional emails through tonight and tomorrow morning. If for some reason a 24-hour extension will not cover your classroom’s needs (e.g. block schedule) include that information in your email and we will work with the College Board to try to accommodate them.
We will continue to update our forum post here and Twitter (@codeorg) with the latest information on the website issues. While the site is now functioning normally for students, some teacher views for teachers with large sections are currently disabled.
We are very sorry if this impacted your class and we are working to resolve the issue and make sure your students get credit for their hard work this year.
