PRACTITIONER SCHOOL 2.0!!!!!!! Ranchito was selected to participate as a PRACTITIONER 2.0 school beginning the 2017-2018 school year: leading with Computational Thinking. The Instructional Technology Initiative (ITI) commended the school's desire to reflect upon and refine its practices to ensure that students cultivate the skills and practices needed to thrive in the world of tomorrow. Ranchito's teaching staff will be engaging in interdisciplinary instructional practices to cultivate computational thinking as a literacy for all. An Instructional Technology Facilitator will be assigned to our school for four days per week to support our teaching staff. The Practitioner Schools 2.0: Leading with Computational Thinking learning community will help pave the way for others in across the District. Ranchito's administration and staff thank the ITI and LDNE teams for their support in moving forward as a technology first school and getting all students academically ready for the 21 Century. I want to thank Ms. Nakakihara and Mr. Lopez for completing the application process and making this a reality.
