In order to be considered for the 2018-2019 school year, schools have to apply for the program before April 19. Teachers will be required to attend a three-day professional development workshop on June 26 through 28 in Frederick, Maryland. The cost for the workshop is $200. While attendance in Frederick is highly recommended, the workshop will also be available online for free. Teachers will be supplied with lesson plans, presentations, assessments and other teaching tools.
