(Revised October 1999)

Leadership teams began giving CPU Workshops in 1997. Thus far, fifty-six workshops have been completed. (Also see Workshop Highlights for a more in-depth look at CPU's impact) Of the fifty-six completed, forty-four were supported by CPU plus other sources, and six workshops was supported entirely by supplemental sources. CPU workshops have a minimum anticipated enrollment of twenty people. As of Fall 1999, 886 teachers around the United States have finished a CPU workshop.

Many CPU leadership teams have applied for supplementary funding from other sources to help support local workshops. As of September, 1999, the total amount of supplemental funding awarded was $1,276,315. The primary sources have been state Eisenhower funds, local school districts, and local industries. This funding includes direct support for workshops, and other forms of support such as computer equipment purchased by schools for offices and classrooms used for trial testing and workshops, release time, and secretarial/technical support.

The following tables to the right provide impact data from the fifty-six workshops already completed as of September, 2000.
