  • Computer Science Endorsement Pathway Training

    With the passage of Chapter 979 of the Public Acts of 2022 by unanimous vote of the Tennessee General Assembly, all Local Education Agencies (LEA) and public charter schools are required to provide K-12 students with grade-level appropriate computer science education. Beginning in the 2024-25 school year, computer science (CS) will be embedded in grades K-5; middle school students will be required to take CS for one grading period during their 6th, 7th, or 8th grade year; and high school students will take CS as a graduation requirement.

    To ensure teachers are properly trained and endorsed to deliver CS courses in middle and high school, the Computer Science Endorsement Pathway (CSEP) has been created. CSEP provides teachers with a no-cost route to computer science endorsement. The endorsement pathway contains six self-paced modules that allow teachers to demonstrate their knowledge and skills of the CS standards by embedding these practices into their current instruction. Teachers who obtained an employment standard or completed training will only be required to take three of the six modules.


    Please note that participants MUST hold a current TN teaching license to enroll in the CS Endorsement Pathway Modules.
