During this poster presentation, participants will learn how one large urban school district embarked on a multi-year researcher-practitioner partnership to develop and sustain the integration of computer science standards across the K-12 curriculum. The strategic plan for this initiative will be shared and participants may use this as a guideline for developing a visionary plan for their own district-wide implementation. The implementation timeline will provide participants with a road map of incremental steps during each phase, successes and challenges encountered, and next steps and expected outcomes as implementation progresses.
