COMPUTER SCIENCE EDUCATION FOR ALL

OUR MISSION

OUR MISSION

The Braintrust is a network of open enrollment public schools committed to building the strongest Computer Science pathways in the country. For all students.

01 / GROW OURSELVES

We will work to rapidly evolve our own programs based on a framework of challenge analysis, critical feedback, and implementation. We will help each other to get bigger, faster, smarter, and more efficient years before we otherwise would have by implementing critical feedback fro this collective to prepare our students for tech careers.

02/ CODIFY THE WORK

We will simplify the process of constructing CS-focused schools and programs across the country by developing a codified playbook based on our collective challenges and subsequent solutions focused on student results in tech readiness.

 
 

OUR PROJECTS

1 / ELEMENTARY TRAJECTORY

Very few curricular providers or schools have built a  comprehensive Elementary School CS trajectory   with clear measures for success. Braintrust schools are collaborating to construct a K-4 CS pathway that will encompass curricular selection, teacher training, and scheduling/staffing models. We are implementing the program across multiple networks for the 2018-2019 school year.

2 / HIGH SCHOOL PATHWAY

Braintrust schools are working together to  codify the knowledge, skills, and experiences  students need in high school to succeed in a tech-literate world post-graduation. Through the implementation across multiple schools, we will construct a model and aligned programs that can be implemented across a diverse range of schools to train successful tech-literate graduates.

OUR PLAYBOOK

What curriculum should I use in my school? How do I schedule a CS class? What development do my teachers need? How can I engage my community members through coding? These are all questions that school leaders grapple with when launching a Computer Science program. Our best answers can be found in our CS Playbook, a living document of best practices and resources from the Braintrust schools.
