Event description

Description

The SCRIPT - the Strategic CSforALL Resource and Implementation Planning Tool - is an initiative of the CSforALL Consortium that serves as a framework and platform to guide district staff in the creation of K-12 Computer Science implementation plans that reflect the unique goals and needs of any school district.

SCRIPT engages districts in self reflection, review of examples, and goal setting for 6 areas designed from research supporting curriculum adoption and organizational change. These areas are: 1) Leadership, 2) Technology Infrastructure, 3) Teacher Capacity and Development, 4) Curriculum, Materials Selection, and Refinement, 5) Partners, and 6) Community.

During this workshop, school district teams will be lead through a series of self assessment and goal setting exercises to develop a computer science pathway for their students. This workshop will help idenfity appropriate resources and partners, create working groups to support computer science initiatives, and identify short term goals to make progress on the CS efforts of your district.

Who is required to attend?
The goal of the workshop is for each district to build or expand upon a CS education implementation plan. District teams of 3-5 people are encouraged to attend. We ask that each team identify one point of contact to facilitate the completion of the registration form and surveys for your school district/charter network team. The point of contact will be responsible for identifying 3-6 participants from your school district to attend the event. Participants can be confirmed closer to the day of the event if you do not know who they are during registration. Districts will be accepted to the workshop in teams (minimum of 3 participants, max 6) that must include at least:

  • one central office administrator K – 12,

  • one building principal,

  • one elementary LMS, middle or high school computer science teacher

Note: Participation by library media specialists and other relevant school personnel is encouraged.

If you don't know all of the members of your team at the time of registration, you can register the others at a later date.
