The CSinPA K-8 Virtual Pathway includes 48 hours of professional learning conducted via asynchronous and synchronous online activities. Over the course of the program, participants set goals for expanding CS access for students and develop and share artifacts to demonstrate progress towards their goals.
The Pathway supports K-8 educators involved with CS instruction, whether as stand-alone classes or by integrating CS concepts and practices into other content-area instruction.

Any PA 7-12 CS teacher that did not participate in a Targeted Grant 7-12 PDE Pathway is eligible to enroll in a self-paced online course to prepare for the exam. There is no cost to participate and Act 48 credit is available. Learn more here.
