Georgia K-12 Computer Science Policies

In 2019, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed Senate Bill 108 which requires all high schools to phase-in computer science classes by the 2024–2025 school year. This new legislation ensures that all students in Georgia have access to rigorous computer science courses and are prepared for the future. View the full Georgia CS Plan.

To increase investment in computer science across the state, the Georgia General Assembly allocated $750,000 for computer science teacher professional development.
