Learning Technology Grant Program Overview: Oneida City School District

Award Years: 2021-2024

da's Road to Code Project

The Oneida City School District’s Road to Code Project will create learning opportunities for students that will directly support district technology standards, student achievement objectives, multiple Next Generation Learning Standards, including the NYS Computer Science and Digital Fluency Learning Standards. Project activities will also support the development of ISTE Skills and the 4 Cs: critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication.

Through this LTG project, educators will deliver innovative professional training to participating teachers and librarians; create a K-8 standards-based digital literacy curriculum to enhance STEAM education: provide extended learning day opportunities for students to engage in coding activities; and develop a cadre of instructional leaders to serve as mentors and resources to other teachers and librarians.

The goals of the Oneida Road to Code Project are to:

  • Expose students to coding at an early age and throughout their school career to encourage interests in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) and prepare them for the modern workforce and
  • Increase district capacity/systems for effective teaching and the use of technology to ultimately impact student performance and sustain positive project outcomes beyond the grant period.

The Oneida City School District is a small city school district in central New York that serves approximately 1,857 students in four elementary (gr. Prek-5), one middle (gr. 6-8), and one senior high (gr. 9-12) school. Oneida’s Road to Code Project targets approximately 1,379 students in grades K-8, including those attending St. Patrick’s School (grades preK-6) and Holy Cross Academy (grades 7-12), nonpublic schools within the district’s boundaries.
