“On October 22, 2018, Arizona’s State Board of Education voted to adopt new K-12 Computer Science Standards. The process to develop new Computer Science Standards began in January 2017. Since that time, the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) has collected public feedback on existing standards and convened working groups of educators, content experts, community members, and parents to create new standards.”  

“Arizona’s K-12 students will develop a foundation of computer science knowledge and learn new approaches to problem-solving and critical thinking. Students will become innovative, collaborative creators and ethical, responsible users of computing technology to ensure they have the knowledge and skills to productively participate in a global society.”
