Working Group Volunteers

Working Group Volunteers


CodeVA is forming "working groups" training to leverage the knowledge and skill-sets of our facilitators and apprentices. 

As a part of this structure, CodeVA faculty will facilitate virtual "working groups" with teams of teachers.  Each of these woking groups have a decided goal and project to complete with discrete tasks, and timelines. Typically, working groups can last from 2 - 8 weeks depending on the project. 

As this is a volunteer opportunity, there will be no compensation; however, your participation may be considered part of your service for re-certification as a facilitator, and credit towards pathway to facilitator for apprentices. In addition,  


See the current the volunteer working group opportunities below:
  1. Curriculum Review Working Groups:
An an immediate need for a review of the current curriculum that CodeVA has available. There will be a minimum of 4 people needed for each grade cluster (K5, MS, HS). As early as next week we will discuss details once we have enough volunteers. With this short notice, we ask that if you plan to volunteer you respond by Friday, March 20 .  
  1. Grade Level Toolkit Working Groups: 
The goal is to provide teachers with a package of information that can be used next school year. This will include how standards have changed from one grade level to the next and example lesson plans  
  1. Praxis Training Development: 
This goal to create a training and support materials for teachers who are preparing to take the Praxis test for the Computer Science endorsement.
Please feel free to sign up for multiple working groups.
