STATE OF INDIANA REQUIREMENTS

Indiana’s K-12 Science standards now require computer science to be available at every grade level. 

Indiana’s Academic Standards for Computer Science allow for students to be prepared in the everchanging computer science areas providing inquiry-based, hands-on experiences based on two components: Concepts and Practices. K-8 standards have been in place and implemented since 2016 and high school course standards have existed for some time. Particularly in K-8,
computer science standards can be integrated into various other subject areas. A variety of elective courses are available for high schools. As students move through grade levels, they will work with and experience the standards at those grade bands (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12).

DID YOU KNOW

Indiana passed policies in 2019 to drastically improve the equity in computer science. They have set strategies in place to target female students, rural areas, and other historically marginalized racial and ethnic groups and are underrepresented in computer science.
