K-5 Common Core Aligned

In 2018, the State of Ohio required the State Board of Education of Ohio to adopt standards and a model curriculum for grade K-12 instruction in computer science. 

“The team of Ohio educators that developed the standards and model curriculum had a clear goal – to encourage districts and educators to give all Ohio students opportunities to learn computer science. Beginning in the earliest grades and continuing through grade 12, Ohio’s students will develop a foundation of computer science knowledge and gain experiences in computational thinking and problem solving to become creators and innovators of computing technology. Ohio’s Computer Science Standards and Model Curriculum will give students experiences that help them discover and take part in a world continually influenced by technology and to understand the role of computing in that world.”
