In 2018, Oregon reported 6,169 open computing jobs with an average salary of $89,447.00. In contrast, Oregon remains one of only five US states that does not provide publicly available K-12 computer science (CS) standards or require high schools to offer CS courses. Also, 93% of Oregon parents want their child’s school to teach CS, but only 37% of Oregon high schools offer CS programs of study. Further, 57% of Oregon school administrators believe CS is as important as a required core class.The CSDrive project positions STEM Hubs as regional leaders in facilitating a solution to these challenges by providing:
What does it take to build a K-12 computer science education plan for your school district? Come to a SCRIPT workshop and find out! The Strategic CSforALL Resource and Implementation Planning Tool (SCRIPT) helps your school district build an equitable, sustainable, localized, K-12 computer science plan.
During the one or two-day in-person SCRIPT workshop, District Teams collaborate on self-assessment and goal-setting, and evaluate the needs, strengths, and challenges facing their districts. Led by a CSforALL facilitator, teams envision long-term K-12 computer science education plans for their districts, and set 3-month, 6-month, and 1-year goals for optimal alignment and progress.
