ADMINISTRATORS: WHAT DOES A PARTNERSHIP LOOK LIKE?
Code/Interactive has partnered with districts in many different ways while training hundreds of educators in computer science. Partner with us to bring computer science to your school, district, or organization.
DISTRICT SPOTLIGHT: MISSION, TEXAS
Code/Interactive worked with Mission CISD in Texas to develop a three year implementation plan to train teachers in CS courses that align to the district’s priorities.
After identifying a district lead for computer science, we expanded courses and units into elementary, middle, and high schools with a focus on community engagement with educators.
Through community building efforts, stakeholders like the Mission Economic Development Corporation were able to contribute to the effort in a public-private partnership.
Code/Interactive is helping Mission CISD through every step of the process while building institutional knowledge so they can maintain a strong program.
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
Code/Interactive helps districts think through key stakeholders, identify existing resources, and create implementation plans to develop K-12 computer science pathways for students. Some of our key steps in the process:
Identify what your district is already doing and the resources you have locally
Identify a district lead or create a working group for computer science
Identify a K-12 computer science pathway for your existing teachers with 3rd party courses
Identify your local requirements for teachers to lead computer science courses
Identify a source of funding for professional development costs, technology, and supplies

Elementary courses focus on infusing computational thinking into the school day with creative tools like Scratch from MIT.
Middle School courses range from units, semesters, and full-year courses to integrated units inside of content area classes.
High School courses include introductory options and Advanced Placement CS Principles to build a pipeline for students.
PARTNER WITH CODE/INTERACTIVE TO BUILD YOUR CS PROGRAM
Code/Interactive builds custom implementation plans for districts after considering your unique resources, needs, and vision for your students.
Some examples of types of partnerships:
• Full district implementations – to guide K-12 computer science integration
• Professional development contracts – to serve specific needs for districts, schools, and organizations
• Advisory relationships – to help districts scale an existing program
