Professional Development Opportunities

Professional Development Opportunities

The goal of the Computer Science for All (CS4All) initiative is to ensure that, by 2025, every NYC public school student receives a meaningful, high-quality computer science (CS) education in each grade band. To help teachers and school leaders prepare, free professional development (PD) opportunities beginning spring/summer 2018 will help schools to implement an introductory or advanced placement CS course for the 2018-19 school year.

The trainings are open to all NYC middle and high school educators, and many are available regardless of prior CS experience. Attending the training will provide participants with all the materials, resources, and ongoing-support needed to implement a successful program.

Per session and CTLE credits will be offered. All NYCDOE middle and high school educators are invited to apply. Please read the Application Overview before submitting an application. Preference will be given to schools with a higher economic need index and higher populations of black and Latino students.

Note: We will only accept one application per school. If multiple teachers from the same school are interested in applying, they must work together to submit one application. Teacher(s) must ensure that they consult with their principal before submitting.

Please watch this pre-recorded introduction video if you plan on joining us for one of our upcoming webinars.
