Computer Science Teacher Stipend Program

LITTLE ROCK – Governor Asa Hutchinson has announced the expansion of the Arkansas Department of Education Computer Science Teacher Stipend Program, which will allow each high school computer science teacher to apply for up to $10,000 in stipends over a five-year period.

In 2015, Governor Hutchinson provided $5 million to ADE to begin the Arkansas Computer Science Initiative. The Governor directed ADE to use a portion of this funding to establish and maintain a one-time $2,000 teacher stipend program for high school teachers who add the computer science endorsement to their licenses and teach courses in this field. The expanded program will provide additional support for the development of computer science programs year after year for up to five years. The stipends will come from the $2.5 million in annual funding the governor has allocated for ADE to support his computer science initiative.       MORE
