This spring, Microsoft brought their TEALS program to local high schools. TEALS is an initiative to bring computer science to every high school by pairing classroom teachers with IT professionals to deliver AP level computer science classes. Two schools in the Milwaukee area and ten New North high schools registered for the program and reworked their class schedules in order to participate.
New North schools involved in the 2017-8 TEALS program include Denmark, Appleton East, West and North, Hortonville, Kimberly, New London, Oakfield, Preble, and Pulaski. Nineteen IT professionals from seventeen New North companies, including IT Alliance members J. J. Keller, Oshkosh Corp., Thrivent, and Secura Insurance are volunteering 200 hours of their time to help local students learn more about computer science.
