Computer Science Implementation Plan

Computer code floating

In May 2022, the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and the Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC) received a directive to develop a statewide implementation plan for computer science education to ensure access to comprehensive computer science education opportunities to every public school student in this state by the 2027-2028 school year.
With extensive community engagement and the support of a Computer Science Consult Group, the Computer Science Education Statewide Implementation Plan nears completion! Watch for a Draft Preview of the plan to be released mid-September and the final full release of the plan around the beginning of October.

Statewide Engagement
ODE and the HECC engaged with more than 700 Oregonians and collected more than 1800 comments and feedback through extensive listening sessions with teachers, students, community members, administrators, higher-education representatives, and industry professionals. The engagements occurred in three phases.
Phase I focused on listening sessions with 
culturally specific organizations, education partners, families, and career-connected partners from December 2022 to April 2023. This phase also included an online survey.

Phase II focused on gathering feedback on the initial Outcomes and Strategies that arose from the conversations during Phase I.

Phase III will feature a Draft Preview of the plan and a survey to provide feedback. This is expected to be available mid-September.


Consult Group

ODE and the HECC would like to express their appreciation to the 45 students, educators, community members, higher education representatives, and industry professionals who gave of their time and expertise to support the development of the Computer Science Education Statewide Implementation Plan.
