From our friends at the MSCPA:
The Massachusetts Society of CPAs (MSCPA) has partnered with the AICPA, along with the creator of the Accounting Pilot & Bridge Project (APBP), Dr. Dan Deines, CPA of Kansas State University, to bring you training that will increase students’ interest through more advanced and engaging accounting content.
Registration for the 2017 Accounting Pilot & Bridge Project is not only FREE, but also provides educators with a $200 stipend for participating.
High school teachers who go through the 3-day program will receive support from the AICPA as they work to implement the course in their state, including:
- Daily lesson plans and assignments
- Pre-written exams with answer keys
- A textbook, including teacher’s notes and PowerPoint presentations
- Access to online teaching resources
- Continuous support post-training
To date, over 1,000 high school teachers in 42 states have attended the training, received their free teaching materials and taken advantage of ongoing support. Act soon! The trainings are filling up fast.
Register and book your hotel today for the 2017 APBP Training at Suffolk University from Monday, August 7 till Wednesday August 9, 2017.
The MSCPA is currently working to develop an early college high school program that will allow students to obtain and transfer 12 credits to the college of their choice. This is still in the idea phase, but it will likely include a partnership with the National Academy Foundation (NAF) and the Massachusetts STEM Council. We also anticipate funding will be available through the STEM council and the school district’s NAF advisory board. The accounting course will require instruction by a teacher who has completed Accounting Pilot and Bridge Program (APBP) training.
