Computer Science Implementation Planning

Washington will begin its transition to the Computer Science Learning Standards using a four-year process that began with the adoption in December 2016. The work will generate transition and crosswalk documents for K-12 Computer Science integration at the elementary and middle school level, and high school integration into Math and Science.
