Pathways for Alabama Computer Science (PACS) will assist in expanding student computer literacy for students in grades 9-12 by establishing a statewide high school pathway of courses. To achieve this goal, teachers will be trained in two rigorous CS courses: Exploring Computer Science and AP CS Principles. High School math teachers will receive training forBootstrap Algebra. PACS also provides training for school counselors through Counselors for Computing (C4C) to assist in their understanding the importance of computer science. These trainings will take place during Alabama CSPdWeek each summer at the University of Alabama.
The dates for summer of 2021 and whether it will be in person or virtual are still in the process of being secured. As soon as these are determined it will be posted. Information from 2020 CSPdWeek can be found here: bit.ly/cspdweek-al-2020-info
