Microsoft TEALS logo

The Minnesota State ITCOE is partnered with AVID to offer computer science (CS) curriculum through Microsoft TEALS.

TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools) is a Microsoft Philanthropies program that believes all students deserve equitable access to inclusive computer science education, especially students who have be excluded from learning Computer Science (CS) because of race, gender, or geography. They help classroom teachers learn to teach computer science on their own by pairing them with industry volunteers and proven curricula.

TEALS schools have access to:
• A dedicated AVID liaison to support every detail of implementation success year-round
• Rigorous curricula and resources approved by CS educators and industry professionals
