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.
