How do I apply for your professional development programs, and when are applications open?


For K-5 training programs:

Go to this map to find a free workshop for K-5 teachers near you! Click one of the pins on the map to bring up an 'info and signup' link, where you'll find a form for signing up.

If you don't see a workshop in your area, you can contact a regional partner in your area via this form, to inquire about bringing a workshop closer to you. We also offer an online self-paced course for K-5 teachers (and one for middle school level content) covering all the same material as the workshops, here!

For middle and high school training programs:

Our middle/high school level workshops typically kick off in the Summer season, with a week-long session. Enter your school zip code here to learn more about the Regional Partner in your region, including where and when it will be held. All participants in the Professional Learning Program are required to attend a five-day in-person summer workshop, as well as up to 4 required 1-day workshops throughout the school year. These workshops are hosted in your local state or region by’s Regional Partners. Participants are assigned to workshops based on which Regional Partner serves their area. We believe it’s important for you to join the cohort you’ll be training with all year. Summer workshops offer you the opportunity to begin building a community of educators that will help support your development throughout the year.
