Ohio's Learning Standards for Computer Science Revision Public Comment Period

The Ohio Department of Education’s Office of Learning and Instructional Strategies is in the process of revising the Ohio’s Learning Standards for Computer Science according to House Bill 110, Section 3301.079. Read more information on this topic below.


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.

Ohio’s Learning Standards for Computer Science Public Comment Period

The Ohio Department of Education’s Office of Learning and Instructional Strategies is in the process of revising the Ohio’s Learning Standards for Computer Science. 

The State Board of Education adopted Ohio’s Learning Standards and Model Curriculum for Computer Science in December 2018. Implemented in the 2019-2020 (FY2020) school year, the purpose of Ohio’s Learning Standards and Model Curriculum for Computer Science is to provide guidance to schools and districts. Ohio educators, many of whom engage daily with Ohio students, led the process to create Ohio’s Learning Standards and Model Curriculum for Computer Science.

In Fall of 2021, the public was invited to provide comment on the current standards and model curriculum. Advisory group members, who have educational background or professional experience in computer science, met several times to discuss the public comment and make suggestions for revisions. The advisory group then provided direction and guidance to the working groups of Ohio educators, who worked to write the revisions. The draft of the revised standards is available for viewing and public comment. Watch for information in the near future about the draft of the revised model curriculum and the opportunity for reviewing and providing feedback.

The review and revision process presents an opportunity for families, computer science professionals, community members and other educators, to provide suggestions for improving the standards through a public comment survey, open Feb. 14 through Feb. 27. 

Please Note: This document only includes standards that had public comment, standards that were revised and standards that are new.


This is the Spread Sheet that includes the draft revision public comment.
