Computer Science and Digital Fluency Learning Standards

The New York State K12 Computer Science and Digital Fluency Learning Standards were adopted by the Board of Regents in December 2020.  The new standards focus on five key concepts:

Each concept contains two or more sub-concepts and within the sub-concepts are a number of standards. The standards are grouped into grade-bands:  K-1, 2-3, 4-6, 7-8, and 9-12. Instruction in the standards must be implemented so as to allow students to achieve the applicable standards by the end of the band.

Standards Examples

The examples contained within the document were created by educators who served on the Computer Science and Digital Fluency Standards Workgroups. The examples are meant to be illustrative only and were designed to be helpful for teachers when planning lessons. To assist in these efforts, some examples include a specific interdisciplinary connection distinction. NYSED does not require any curriculum or instructional strategy. All curriculum decisions are made at the local level.
