New! The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) is committed to supporting the growth of the discipline of computer science in middle and high schools in Georgia and has allocated state funds to create the Computer Science Teacher Equipment and Community Grant (CSTEC). This non-renewable, non-transferable grant is intended to support Computer Science initiatives during the school year. A maximum of $450,000 in CSTEC Grants will be awarded for the 2022- 2023 (FY23) school year, up to $5,000 per grantee.
The Request for Proposal (RFP) is now available, and proposals are due on

GaDOE recently awarded its fourth round of CS4GA Computer Science Capacity Grants to 17 districts. Each district will receive up to $25,000 to build their teacher capacity for computer science. These funds are part of the 2019 Computer Science (CS) legislation that requires all middle and high schools to offer CS; middle schools by the 2022-2023 school year, and high schools by the 2024-2025 school year. The grant is a one-time award. The next grant period will open in August of 2023.

Georgia Virtual Learning has several online professional development courses for CS teachers. A series for
Integrating Computational Thinking is publicly available and can be used to gain a nationally recognized credential from the International Society of Technology Education (ISTE) and provide credit towards the CS Endorsement at Georgia State University. Other courses are only available to Georgia teachers via your local SLDS and the GaLearns Hub professional learning portal (search for Computer Science).
