CodeHS Indiana Computer Science Education Guide

In the 21st century, coding is a foundational skill, just like reading and writing. Everyone should get the chance to learn coding—it’s a skill that provides limitless creative opportunity to students and future generations.

With great curriculum, resources, and support, school districts across the country can implement high-quality computer science programs. At CodeHS, our goal is to make computer science education fun and accessible to all!

Indiana K-12 Computer Science Policies

The Indiana Department of Education made great strides in 2018 with the passing of Senate Enrolled Act 172, requiring all elementary, middle, and high schools to offer computer science by 2021-2022. After June 30, 2021, public and charter high schools, much offer at least one (1) computer science course as a one (1) semester elective in the public high school’s curriculum at least once each school year for high school students.
