Ysleta ISD’s Valley View Middle Receives $20K Grant for Computer Science Curriculum

Valley View Middle School has been selected to receive a $20,000 grant to implement an innovative computer science curriculum through a partnership between the Verizon Foundation and Project Lead The Way.

According to a news release from YISD, Project Lead the Way is “a nonprofit organization that provides a transformative learning experience for K-12 students and teachers through K-12 pathways in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science.”

The curriculum provides students the opportunity to experience computer science in a relevant and engaging way by empowering them to solve real-world problems using the powerful ideas behind analytical thinking.

In addition, by using a hands-on project-based instructional approach, students will strengthen their critical thinking, collaboration, and communication skills.

The grant will be disbursed over a two-year period, and will also support professional development for teachers and provide schools with equipment including tablets and software.

Valley View Middle School is only one of 72 schools in the country to be chosen for this program.
