We are seeking districts with faculty members interested in computer science education, who are considering the computer science PRAXIS, or who are simply enthusiastic about exploring new content areas as local support for the class. ASMSA’s nationally-acclaimed computer science education specialist will serve as the primary instructor and teacher-mentor for the course, providing instruction digitally three days per week. Participating faculty will provide direct student support two additional days per week as learners experience the hands-on, practical components of computer science. To prepare teachers for this support role, ASMSA will offer a one-week, residential professional development program in late July 2016. Housing in ASMSA’s Student Center and meals will be provided to participating districts. Teachers will join a professional learning community of others new to this subject and benefit from ongoing mentorship throughout the year. The cost for summer professional development (including housing and meals), curriculum development, and weekly support is $2,250.00 $500.

Space for the program is limited.  Sign up here or for additional information please contact
