Osage School District Case Study

A Case for Computer Science Education

In 2017, Osage participated in NewBoCo’s first Code.org cohort for both Computer Science Discoveries and Computer Science Principles. From there, they saw the engagement and impact students had from learning computer science, and started to expand their implementation to elementary school.

By 2019, by using funding and sponsored opportunities, Osage began focusing on computer science integration into core content areas at each grade level to provide a tighter connection for students and improve engagement in all areas.
