CSforMA, Inc., offers expertise in designing curricula, planning districtwide implementation, creating innovative pathways in computer science fields and consulting with state policy leaders.
State Public Policy Leadership
We are a member of the committee for the development of the Massachusetts Digital Literacy Computer Science Teacher Standards and Licensure. As experts in curricula, best practices, strategic planning, training, workforce development, and national computer science initiatives, we work with policy leaders and guide Massachusetts efforts to bring computer science education to all.
The SCRIPT (Strategic CSforALL Resource & Implementation Planning Tool) is a nationally-recognized framework to guide teams of district administrators, school leaders, and educators through a series of collaborative visioning, self-assessment and goal-setting exercises to support systems-level change by addressing five key areas: (1) Leadership, (2) Teacher Capacity and Development, (3) Curriculum and Materials Selection and Refinement, (4) Partners, and (5) Community. We offer workshops on SCRIPT throughout the year, helping District Teams develop their own unique strategy for bringing computer science to their system.
School System Leadership
As experts on workforce development, we developed a Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathway for Boston Public Schools which has been implemented at Madison Park High School. This pathway focuses on programming and web development and features a combination of coursework leading to certifications and college credits that can be obtained through advancement in the program.
We also serve on the leadership team of the Innovations Pathway in Computer Science at Burlington High School. This CS pathway encourages a more diverse population of students to create, collaborate and communicate using computer science. Students take college level computer science coursework, make career connections, and complete a capstone project led by an industry mentor.
