Posted On: 1/12/2023

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) recently named the York County School Division (YCSD) as a recipient of the Advancing Computer Science Education Grant.

Beginning this school year, YCSD will partner with CodeVA to create a sustainable model of computer science professional development for teachers participating in cohort model training. The grant program will enable staff to develop and implement the YCSD CODEplus video library of high-quality computer science integrated lessons, which include the VDOE Standards of Learning. Grant funding will be utilized to provide schools the necessary materials to implement the integrated computer science lessons with fidelity. Additionally, the grant program will provide opportunities for YCSD students to participate in a variety of after-school and summer activities designed to increase their interest in and awareness of computer science careers.
