*CS Discoveries workshops are closely aligned with the Discovering CS standards. Teachers who attended PD this summer should plan to attend a Part 1, 2, 3, and 4 workshop, especially if you received a scholarship.


**CS Principles workshops are more broadly aligned to Discovering CS, Fundamentals of Computing, Computer Science Principles, and Fundamentals of Web Page Design. Even if you attended CS Discoveries during the summer, you are welcome to attend CS Principles. Part 1, 2, 3, and 4 are in addition to summer training and are meant to provide “just-in-time” support as you teach during the school year. If you have not attended a summer PD, I would still encourage you to attend one of these workshops to receive support during implementation. However, a 30-hour, 5-day summer PD is needed for certification to teach one of the previously mentioned courses.
