SCRIPT Training / Virtual During COVID-19


Computer science instruction is no longer a “nice to have.”

Read the CS for All white paper: “CS for What? Diverse Visions of Computer Science Education in Practice”

Connecticut legislation requires it, and recent events demonstrate that reliance on information technology — as powered by computer science — is only growing.

For students, this presents a wealth of college and career opportunity.

For educators, this presents a challenge. How does a school district design a high-quality K-12 computer science education plan rich in relevant content so that students can leverage computer science opportunities that exists today and tomorrow? 

SCRIPT — the Strategic CSforALL Resource & Implementation Planning Tool — is the answer.

SCRIPT is a district-wide computer science education planning process. It features an expert SCRIPT facilitator who guides district administrators, school leaders, teachers and other relevant staff through a framework of collaborative visioning, self-assessment and goal-setting exercises to create or expand K-12 computer science education for their students.

The result is a rigorous, inclusive and sustainable K-12 computer science education plan grounded in:

  • leadership
  • teacher capacity and development
  • curriculum, materials selection, and refinement
  • partners
  • community

The SCRIPT process fosters meaningful change by

  • engaging all stakeholders
  • identifying appropriate resources and partners
  • creating a district-wide computer science education task force, with subcommittees
  • evaluating the existing ecosystem
  • setting short- and long-term goals to ensure progress
