Summer PD

Are you a teacher interested in bringing more Computer Science to your school or district? Are you looking for a way to vertically align computer science in your district that will bring meaningful learning to students?

Educators receive five days of professional learning, support throughout the academic year, opportunity to earn credits towards a Computer Science Cross Endorsement, and much more!

Learn more at our meeting and check out additional information on the CS-Plan website or this flyer.

The deadline to register is June 15, 2023.

Milestone C Curriculum
The Current State of Artificial Intelligence
Milestone C was founded by industry professionals who saw a major need to provide students with additional exposure to modern technology and to teach them foundational, career-connected skills that prepare them for the real world. 
Milestone C programs focus on career connection and employability skills. Milestone C programs emulate industry practices from software to aerospace, but with a dual focus on foundational skills which every student, no matter where life takes them, will need.
More Opportunities for You
New Resource from CT CSTA!
K-12 Pathways
Check out the new K-12 Pathway Resource from CT CSTA!  It takes a village to create a successful K-12 Computer Science Pathway in your district.  From K-5, 6-7, and 9-12 the strategies are varied and the approaches are fluid.  On this page we provide guidance on how to promote a successful K-12 pathway at each education level and as a whole.
This resource is a work-in-progress and we could use your help to make it better. Do you have suggestions for how to improve this resource?  Please contact us and share your ideas!

CS Coaching for Equity
FREE PD with Stipend

The National Center for Computer Science Education has partnered with Code Savvy on the Coaching for Equity in Computer Science project. This is a National Science Foundation funded project centered on creating two coaching programs for Computer Science educators focusing on using inclusive teaching practices.

We are looking for coaches (those with more than three years of CS teaching experience) and teachers to be coached (those with less than three years of CS teaching experience). Stipends are available for coaches and coachees who are accepted into the programs. 

We ask those interested in the 2023-24 academic year to apply by July 30, 2023.  Visit to get started.
