    SCRIPT: Strategic CSforALL Resource and Implementation Planning Tool, is a framework to guide teams of district administrators, school leaders, and educators through a series of collaborative visioning, self-assessment and goal-setting exercises to create or expand upon a computer science education implementation plan for their students (CSforALL). This workshop supports school based teams in crafting a localized vision for Computer Science implementation.

    School districts and other local education organizations are the unit of change toward creating rigorous, inclusive and sustainable K-12 computer science education. Participants will engage in a systems-level change process by addressing five key areas:
    (1) Leadership
    (2) Teacher Capacity and Development
    (3) Curriculum and Materials Selection and Refinement
    (4) Partners
    (5) Community

    Participants will determine goals, create a plan, and outline next steps to bring a comprehensive CS education plan to their school/district.

    Target Audience: LEA based teams 

    Teams must include: Central office administrator, building level administrator, school counselor, two content area experts. Other team members may include: educational leaders, K-12 teachers, school librarians, special education supervisors, and stakeholders involved in computer science programming. 15 people max per team.
