CSforALL: SCRIPT Training

Creating a Plan for Computer Science Instruction GrK-12

CSforALL is a hub for the national Computer Science for All movement, which works to enable all students in grades K-12 to achieve computer science literacy as an integral part of their educational experience. The Southern Indiana Education Center is pleased to share an opportunity for your district team to begin the development of a plan to implement computer science within your curriculum. In March 2018, SEA 172 was signed into law requiring that:

  • After June 30, 2021, each public high school, including each charter school, shall offer at least one (1) computer science course as a one (1) semester elective in the public high school’s curriculum at least once each school year for high school students.
  • After June 30, 2021, each public school, including each charter school, shall include computer science in the public school’s curriculum for students in kindergarten through grade 12.

With this in mind, the Education Service Centers of Indiana have joined together to provide CSforALL:SCRIPT Training around the state. DeAnne Taggart, SIEC Director of Professional Learning, is trained and ready to share a full day of planning, goal development, collaboration, and action steps.

Goals for the day include:

  1. Provide each school district with support to create customized 3-month, 6-month, and long-term goals for computer science implementation
  2. Discuss and utilize the following components of SCRIPT: Leadership, Teacher Capacity & Development, Materials and Curricular Selection & Content Refinement, Partners, and Community.
  3. Provide time to explore free resources and support in developing a computer science curriculum.
Computer Science for All is a bold new initiative to empower all US students from kindergarten through high school to learn computer science and be equipped with the computational thinking skills they need to be creators in the digital economy, not just consumers, and to be active citizens in our technology-driven world. Our economy is rapidly shifting, and educators, policy makers, families, and business leaders are increasingly recognizing that computer science (CS) is a “new basic” skill necessary for economic opportunity and social mobility. Please plan on joining us on January 9, 2018 for a session designed specifically for district teams K-12 striving to integrate computer science instruction. See more information below.
