CSforAll Consortium's Personal Meeting Room - Shared screen with speaker view
Good afternoon, my name is Paul Foster, I am the CIO in the Springfield, Mass public schools and we are working to ensure all our students are taught computer science from kindergarten through 12th grade.
Our RPP is called AWSM in CS and is focused on a NIC of high school teachers all working to increase participation and success of young women in HS CS courses.
Hi Everyone - I believe if you joined after I did that you didn't see my 'hello' so wanted to repost - this is Cindy Blitz from Rutgers University, Center for Effective School Practices (CESP; also on the line is Jeanette McCreary and Vivian Allen) and we're working with colleagues from RU's department of computer science (Fran Trees! - who is on this call - along with Thu Nguyen) on a project --- CS-TLC. Happy to be here!
If that breakout technology works, that’ll be impressive!
Hi Everyone! Leigh Ann DeLyser and Stephanie Wortel-London here from CSforALL. Welcome to the project.
Can someone tell me what BPC-A is?
BPC-A is the Broadening Participation in Computing Alliance from the National Science Foundation
Mimi, Eric, Leigh Ann and Joseph, please don't forget to record your sessions :) Thanks!
Leigh Ann you are in group 4 sorry I did not see your name
How can one join the slack channel?
can you post the full name of the slack channel?
Are these slides going to be made available (or are they already?)
Yes slides will be on line
have we already been added to the CCOP and getting newsletters?
The first newsletter that you all should receive will be at the end of this week. Unless you have also been involved in the first cohort.
Excuse me folks, I have to attend a 1pm PDT meeting. It’s nice to start developing some new collegial relationships!
I share a similar problem to Steve, so will have to leave soon. Thanks — its been a great intro
Thank you both for joining us while you could! Look for the newsletter in your inbox.

hey all, i also have to run for a meeting at the top of the hour. many thanks to all for organizing everything. this has been supremely helpful.
Yes, I like that, too. I also like the data sharing idea and feel like we should do that at some point. I'm not sure how much our partners have dived into the equity side of data and that might get them thinking more about it.
Facilitators took notes during the breakouts, so we'll compile and share them out. Great discussion in our room! O
Your folders will only be accessible by the RPPforCS team and your team. It will not be available to other teams.
FYI- We got proposals from almost all Cohort 1 teams. A few teams chose to redact portions of it, and one or two preferred to complete the "profile" template on their own
How frequent are these webinars and how far in advance might we receive the schedule?
It would be helpful to have more advance notice for the webinars. Thank you.
Thanks, nice to meet some other RPPers.
Thank you, Renee. Hope to see you on future webinars/meetups!
Thanks, this was very helpful. Look forward to talking to you all again.
