Ohio's Learning Standards for Computer Science

Share Your Computer Science Activities

Computer science education is expanding in Ohio’s K-12 schools, and the Department would like to learn about and share the types of classroom activities Ohio’s schools are providing that align to Ohio’s Standards and Model Curriculum for Computer Science.

Please email John Wiseman or call (614) 728-7589 to share your success stories, best practices and resources.

Ohio's Learning Standards for Computer Science (adopted 2018)

The State Board of Education adopted Ohio’s Learning Standards for Computer Science and model curriculum in December 2018. Ready for implementation in the 2019-2020 (FY2020) school year, the purpose of Ohio’s computer science standards and model curriculum is to provide guidance to schools and districts.

Ohio educators, many of whom engage daily with Ohio students, drove the process to create Ohio’s Learning Standards for Computer Science. In many cases, these standards and model curriculum reflect instruction already taking place in Ohio’s classrooms.

Districts are not mandated to include these standards in any school offerings or to provide a curriculum that addresses these standards.

In addition to the standards and model curriculum the work of creating instructional strategies is ongoing and will provide additional resources to help educators learn about and begin using, the revised standards.
