Equitable Computer Science Education at Decatur City Schools
Decatur City Schools is the most diverse school system in Alabama, comprised of 40% Caucasian, 30% Hispanic and other, and 30% African American students. Their goal is to "change the family tree" and expose students to computer science education to help break the poverty cycle.
Sustainable CS for All Initiative at Dallas Independent School District
Dallas ISD is no stranger to computer science (CS) education. Their goal is to expand the CS offerings from elementary to middle and high school. With the support of their Computer Science and Technology department, Dallas ISD will provide extra aid to teachers with devices, software, and PD.
The Power Behind CS Education at Avondale Elementary School District
Avondale Elementary School District's mission is to ensure that every child grows as a thinker, problem-solver, and communicator, to pursue a future without limits. To fulfill that mission, Avondale partnered with BootUp PD to develop a three-year district-wide implementation program that would engage students in critical thinking and communication.
Completing the CS Pipeline at Aldine Independent School District
Aldine ISD understood the importance of starting with elementary students to build a computer science (CS) foundation with computational thinking. With a strong STEM club and after-school programs, they recognized the importance of implementing computer science during the day to create equitable access to all students.
Computer Science for All in New Mexico
Truth or Consequences Municipal School District (TCMSD) embarked on a three-year implementation strategy to introduce computer science (CS) to every student at Truth or Consequences Elementary School (K-3) and Sierra Elementary School (4-5). BootUp's goal is to enable students to understand the technology shaping their world and equip them with the computational thinking skills they need to succeed.
Computer Science for ALL at MOC-Floyd Valley
Originally funded by the Iowa Computer Science (CS)Professional Development Incentive Fund, MOC-Floyd Valley computer science initiative started in August of 2018 with the goal to implement equitable computer science curricula for every elementary and middle school student (1,027) and receive 15 hours of computer science instruction a year. In 2019, they renewed their commitment to equitable CS under an Iowa STEM Grant.
Expanding College Career Technical Education to all students
As part of Shelby County School Districts (SCS) SD’s “Big Six Programs”: High wage, high demand jobs, SCS aims to expand 21st-century skills to their elementary and middle schools. In order to align with Tennessee's Digital Readiness curriculum standards, SCS was on a mission to further integrate computer science (CS) with core subjects like Math, Science, and English.
