Introduction to Data Science Partnership

To implement the curriculum as designed/planned, your district/school leadership would need to apply for an IDS partnership. We are currently partnering with districts within Southern California. If you are not in California but still interested in partnership, please contact the IDS team at info@idsucla.org

You can review the curriculum and also “test drive” the technology via our sandbox on a limited, 2-week trial basis, but actual classroom implementation requires training and technical support, both of which are currently only offered to IDS partners on a fee-for-service basis. Our technology team cannot provide ongoing support for non-partnership teachers.

For more information on application requirements and cost, please continue reading the FAQ below, or download it here.

How and when can our district/school apply for partnership?
