Wisconsin Adopts Computer Science Standards

From the Department of Public Instruction:

“With the adoption of standards for computer science, Wisconsin is one of nine states to have established academic standards for this increasingly important subject area. Additionally, as part of the ongoing standards review and revision process, public comment is now open on new draft standards in music, science, and information and technology literacy.

“In addition to formal adoption of computer science standards, the State Superintendent’s Standards Review Council recommended that the state superintendent pursue a formal rewrite of the state’s music, science, and information and technology literacy standards. For each set of standards, a panel of Wisconsin experts — representing classroom educators, school leaders, and higher education, with input from business owners and groups — was convened to develop new standards.”
