Board of Regents Acts to Conditionally Approve First Ever Learning Standards for Computer Science and Digital Fluency
The Board of the Regents today acted to conditionally approve New York State’s first ever Learning Standards for Computer Science and Digital Fluency. The State Education Department conducted a collaborative process over a fifteen-month period that included a group of statewide experts on computer science and educational technology to assist in creating computer science and digital fluency standards that best meet the needs of students across New York State. Today, the standards were conditionally approved by the Board of Regents P-12 Committee. The additional time will allow for the Department to engage with early learning experts to ensure the K-2 standards are developmentally appropriate. The standards will be returned to the Board later this year for final adoption.
