Get Ready for New OK Law: Attend Code.org Workshops!

Jen BloomEducators, Front Page, PD Opportunity

Starting in the 2024-25 school year, Oklahoma Senate Bill 252 mandates that all public charter and public elementary and middle schools in Oklahoma must offer instruction aligned with the Oklahoma Academic Standards for Computer Science. Additionally, all public high schools and public charter high schools are required to provide at least one standalone computer science course.

You Don’t Need to Be a Software Developer to Teach Computer Science!

Code.org, in partnership with the Oklahoma Public School Resource Center and sponsored in part by TRSA, is excited to offer professional development workshops to help schools prepare for this change. Teachers will receive an hourly stipend for each of the 5 days.
