Computer Science updates

Beginning July 1, 2022, some key requirements of House File 2629 will go into effect. Those requirements include:

  • The development and implementation of a K-12 Computer Science plan.
  • The development and implementation of a one-half unit of computer science at the high school level.

The DE recently released two funding opportunities to help districts meet these requirements.

You can find more information about these funding opportunities as well as Central Rivers AEA Computer Science supports on this communication from the Iowa Area Education Agencies. The CRAEA Computer Science Updates is a good resource to keep handy. This document will be routinely updated with new information and AEA support offered throughout the year.
