Background

Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) is committed to expanding quality computer science education in Indiana. Governor Eric Holcomb and the Indiana General Assembly have indicated computer science education as a priority through the passage of SEA 172 (2018), requiring every school, by 2021, to incorporate computer science in the school's curriculum for students in grades K-12. Indiana currently has computer science standards in place for grades K-8 and has a variety of computer science course offerings available for high schools. IDOE feels strongly about providing every student in Indiana with the opportunity to learn computer science, as this is as an increasingly necessary step in preparing students to be productive citizens in an ever-changing, technology-driven world.
