Computer Science Professional Development Incentive Fund

Computer Science Professional Development Incentive Fund - Register Today

The Iowa Department of Education announced the Computer Science Professional Development Incentive Fund (CSPDIF) this month. Applications are now open and will be accepted until February 11, 2022. You can learn more about the CSPDIF on the Educate Iowa website.

Iowa's AEAs are collaborating to write a CSPDIF grant application to help meet the needs of Iowa school districts. Many current (and future) computer science teachers are singletons in their building or district. Our intent is to provide educators professional development opportunities they may not otherwise have access to in order to implement K-12 district plans for computer science instruction and provide quality computer science education. Together, we can support one another to deliver K-12 computer science to all students!

This website is the communication hub for the AEA Statewide Computer Science Professional Development Incentive Fund (CSPDIF). It includes information about each of the options we plan to include in our grant proposal.

The Statewide AEA Collaborative grant applications will include:

Elementary CSPDIF grant proposal

Secondary CSPDIF grant proposal


✅ SAVE YOUR SPOT: Visit this website and save your spot ASAP! Registration will only be open through January 31st so we can have the most accurate numbers in our grant proposal. If you aren’t sure which teachers will be participating, please have the building administrator complete this process.

If you have any questions, please contact your AEA Statewide Computer Science Team Member:
