Public input sought on computer science standards

Iowa Department of Education Director Ryan Wise has announced the opportunity for public input on the K-12 Computer Science Standards that are under consideration in Iowa. Public forums are scheduled throughout the state on April 10 and April 12, as well as an online survey open through May 12. These standards were developed by the Computer Science Teachers Association.

Wise convened Iowa’s Computer Science Standards Review Team earlier this year in response to Senate File 274, which former Gov. Branstad signed into law in 2017. The legislation encourages computer science in every Iowa school, establishes voluntary computer science standards and creates a computer science professional development fund to help prepare teachers.
