COVID-19 UPDATE

Dear WeTeach_CS Family,

It is with heavy hearts we must announce the cancellation of all WeTeach_CS in-person professional development slated to occur this June. This includes the 2020 WeTeach_CS Summit, scheduled for June 22-24, 2020 at the Georgetown Sheraton. In light of the spread of COVID-19 and the uncertainties presented by this extraordinary pandemic, we cannot move forward with any confidence that such a gathering would be safe or permissible at that time. However, we are converting several of our in-person workshops to virtual learning opportunities. Read on for more details.

WETEACH_CS RESOURCES FOR ONLINE INSTRUCTION
