Computer Science K-12 Learning Standards
Conditions of Use:

Effective and relevant computer science education is essential to achieving our vision that “every student is ready for college, career, and life.” While attention to computer science education has increased in recent years, a lack of awareness about its content and potential impact is widespread. The Washington State Computer Science K–12 Learning Standards are designed to enhance teacher understanding and improve student learning so that students are better equipped for college, career, and life.

Washington is committed to implementing high-quality computer science instruction to:

* Increase the opportunity for all students to gain knowledge of computer science.
* Introduce the fundamental concepts and applications of computer science to all students, beginning at the elementary school level.
* Make computer science at the secondary level accessible, worthy of a computer science credit, and/or equivalent to math and science courses as a required graduation credit (see Level 3B of computer science standards).
* Offer additional secondary-level computer science instruction that allows interested students to study facets of computer science in depth and prepare them for entry into a career or college.

Learning standards describe what students need to know and be able to do. Standards are worded broadly to allow flexibility at the district, building, and classroom levels.

Washington’s Basic Education Act requires that school districts provide opportunities for every student to “understand the importance of work and finance and how performance, effort, and decisions directly affect future career and educational opportunities.”

Legislative mandates include:

RCW 28A.655.070: The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) will “develop and periodically revise essential academic learning requirements that identify the knowledge and skills all public school students need to know and be able to do.”
RCW 28A.300.460 (2)(d): The Financial Education Public Private Partnership will “work with the office of the superintendent to integrate financial education skills and content knowledge into the state learning standards.”
RCW 28A.300.462: School districts are encouraged to “voluntarily adopt the jumpstart coalition national standards in K-12 personal financial education and provide students with an opportunity to master the standards.”
The Financial Education Public-Private Partnership, The Center for Economic and Financial Education at Western Washington University, the Council for Economic Education, and OSPI Learning and Teaching and Career and College Readiness will collaborate on implementing these mandates
