In May 2022, the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and the Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC) received a
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.
This plan is grounded in the belief that a basic understanding of computer science is vital for all Oregon students. The purpose of this Draft Preview is to give students, educators, community members, higher education and workforce representatives another opportunity to provide feedback prior to the final publication of the plan.
Sharing this Draft Preview marks an important milestone toward the goal of broadening access, participation, and engagement in computer science education for every public school student. Detailed in this draft plan are:
- recommended strategies
- measures for monitoring progress
- considerations that provide context and details
- a potential timeline, and
- a discussion of funding.
Please keep in mind that this plan is in draft form and the final release will likely look different than this draft version as feedback is received and considered.
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.
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.
We’d love to hear from you about how we can increase equitable access to Computer Science Education for all students! If you have any questions or comments, please send us an email att email@example.com
