Computer Science

It is essential that every student has access to and participate in computer science learning experiences to meet the demands of the current and future workplace. The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) has taken a lead role to build capacity for statewide implementation of computer science. MSDE has collaborated with stakeholders to:
  • Develop a PreK-12 Computer Science Framework.
  • Create a Computer Science Toolkit that supports Framework implementation.
  • Expand computer science teacher certification options.
  • Expand options available for students to fulfill graduation requirements with computer science courses.
  • Expand Career and Technical Education Computer Science Programs of Study.
  • Provide funding for computer science professional learning, equipment, and course implementation.
  • Provide professional learning experiences for Maryland educators.

MSDE will continue to build capacity so that all Maryland students have the opportunity to engage in high-quality computing education.
