Virginia K-12 Computer Science Pipeline
The LEF is working with LCPS and Chesapeake Public Schools (CPS) to develop a sustainable and replicable model for how to implement Virginia’s integrated Computer Science standards and ensure that Kindergarten through Grade 12 students are given the skills, certifications, and experiences necessary to enter the current and future technology workforce. The goal of the Virginia K-12 Computer Science Pipeline initiative is to provide a successful long-term sustainable strategy to integrate computer science and computational thinking skills into every subject (i.e. Math, Science, Social Studies, etc.) for grades K-12 to bridge the gap between computer science education and the Tech Talent workforce pipeline.
The Virginia K-12 Computer Science Pipeline includes integration of computer science and computational thinking skills in grades K-8 with enhanced curriculum in grades 9-12, including an Experiential Learning program. This program will include internship, mentorship, and job shadowing opportunities with local business and industry leaders. If you or your company are interested in supporting LCPS student internships in 2018-2019, please contact Danielle Nadler at Danielle.Nadler@lcps.org.
