Tips for PLTW Computer Science Program Implementation

When building out your PLTW Computer Science program, keep in mind that the strongest programs typically focus on key shared, student-focused priorities. These programs tend to provide access to a variety of PLTW Computer Science courses to students at all grade levels, ensuring every student gets to experience PLTW. In most strong programs, several teachers are trained and are actively engaged in the program and focused on student engagement and achievement. In addition, strong PLTW Computer Science programs receive enthusiastic support from district and school leaders.
