Middle & High School Teachers! Apply for Code.org Teacher Professional Learning Program 2018-19 Now!

January 16 - March 30

We're excited to announce that applications for Code.org's Professional Learning Programs for CS Principles (Grades 6-10) and CS Discoveries (Grades 9-12) are now open! If your school plans to offer these courses in 2018-19 AND if you will be teaching either course, you qualify to apply for the program. 

Code.org's Professional Learning Programs are intensive, year-long professional learning programs for middle and high school educators who are interested in teaching Code.org's CS Discovieries (Grades 6-10) or CS Principles (Grades 9-12) course. These programs are designed to prepare educators to provide high quality instruction based on the curriculum, tools, and approach to students in their classrooms. Those programs are free and all expenses including flights, hotel, meals, etc. during the training are also covered. Note: We will not pay for your out-of-school time during the training.  

Teachers who apply and are accepted to the program commit to:

  • Attending TeacherCon - i.e., a five-day, in-person summer workshop
    • TeacherCon Atlanta: June 17-22 in Atlanta, GA 
    • Note: If you have a schedule conflict, but have a strong wish to be part of the program, we advise you to apply and contact us about it so we can put you on a waitlist for TeacherCon Phonix, July 22-27 in Phoenix, AZ.  
  • Attending four local one-day, in-person workshops (normally on Saturdays)
  • Teaching the course during the 2018-19 school year (requires the principal approval)
  • Supporting the recruitment and enrollment of a diverse group of students in the course, representative of the school's overall student population
