Professional Development by College Board–Endorsed Providers
College Board endorses education organizations that offer AP CSA curricula. These providers also offer professional development to teachers who will use their curriculum.
Implementing AP CSA with an out-of-the-box curriculum and getting teacher training from the provider who supplies the curriculum may be a good solution for your school.
