Are you ready to prepare K-5 teachers and students with skills of the future?
As a district leader, we'll partner with you to support elementary computer science implementation district-wide through ongoing teacher professional development and coaching.

We provide K-5 teachers with the resources to get started
PD Workshops prepare teachers to become confident and effective in coding by sharing computer science and computational thinking concepts, practices, and pedagogy. Our Instructional Coach Course allows educators to increase coaching responsibilities, co-facilitate, and eventually lead PD.
On-site Support/ Model Teaching
BootUp supports classroom implementation through onsite Model Teaching and Coaching. Facilitators can either travel to your district to model elementary computer science to your students or virtually lead a model lesson for your classroom.
Instructional Coach Course
Instructional coaches take on increased facilitation and coaching responsibilities as they work through the Instructional Coach Course, co-facilitating larger portions of PD. By the third year, instructional coaches are asked to lead all PD with the support of a BootUp facilitator.
We’ll meet you where your district is
Our professional development combines workshops (regional or district-wide) with in-person model teaching and coaching, delivered over multiple years.
We understand the new dynamics the pandemic has brought to our districts, therefore we've modified our professional development to work in a virtual setting without compromising quality.
Have the best of both worlds, and start your teacher professional development program no matter where you are.
Our curricular resources align with the K-12 Computer Science Framework and CSTA Standards. We work one-on-one with districts to develop a unique plan and create lesson plans and resources tailored to meet state-specific requirements.
We provide interest-driven, project-based lesson plans for novice to more advanced teachers. Our curriculum consists of open-ended coding projects that encourage students' interests to guide and enrich their learning within personally meaningful projects.
We understand the importance of finding the right funding opportuntiy that fits the needs of your district. Our District Coding Accelerator's will work with you to find the right funding options that fit your districts' K-5 computer science education needs.

We'll deliver PD for teachers to ensure equitable and sustainable computer science education for all.
