The Office of Public Instruction's Montana Ready initiative is dedicated to preparing students for success in Montana's economy after they graduate by providing tangible career and college readiness skills beginning in middle school. A key component of this well-rounded education is computer science. Along with agriculture, career & technical education (CTE), science, technology, engineering, & math (STEM), work-based learning, and dual enrollment, computer science is of growing importance to landing a high-paying Montana career after high school.

The OPI is exploring avenues to add computer science in every high school. The TEALS program, run by Microsoft Philanthropies, allows tech professionals to work as volunteers with students, teachers, and school administrators. Through various teaching models, TEALS volunteers work with schools to teach computer science and give students the tools they need to succeed in today’s globally innovative economy.

We look forward to expanding TEALS programs in Montana schools in the coming year!
