The Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering (ASCTE) is proud to announce the launch of a new statewide program: Advancing Cyber Concepts and Engineering Learning (ACCEL). ACCEL is an outreach effort from the Alabama School of Cyber Technology & Engineering (ASCTE). The Alabama Legislation that created ASCTE also mandates that the school assist teachers, administrators, and superintendents across the state in replicating cyber technology & engineering studies within their own schools.
Within the past year, ASCTE offered middle school cyber camps in Jackson, Clarke, and Bullock Counties. ACCEL will formalize this effort to include educator workshops, cyber curriculum implementation, standard-based grading pedagogy, K-12 curriculum support, and training for IT specialists. In addition, ACCEL will customize to meet the needs of schools and districts across Alabama.
