Cohort 2 SCRIPT Workshop

The SCRIPT - School CSforALL Resource & Implementation Planning Tool - is a new initiative of the CSforALL Consortium that will serve as a framework and platform to guide district staff in the creation of CS4RI implementation plans that adhere to CS4RI values and reflect the unique needs and goals of any school district. This is a hands-on, active participation workshop to empower district and school teams to answer the "WHY" question; to value different perspectives; and to equip districts with tools and supports for prioritizing and decision making at the local level. More info here.

Substitute reimbursement is available. Please apply for that here.
