Maryland K-12 Computer Science Policies
In January 2018, Maryland State Department of Education began developing the K-12 computer science standards to improve computer science education across the state.
Shortly after, House Bill 281 was passed requiring all high schools to offer at least one computer science course by school year 2021-2022. School Boards were also asked to make efforts to incorporate computer science in each elementary and middle school, and increase enrollment of female students, students with disabilities, and students of underrepresented ethnic or racial groups.Source: Maryland Department of Education

CodeHS' Impact on MarylandGunston High School - Queen Anne's County, Maryland
As the Director of Technology at Gunston High School, a small private school in Maryland, Joe Thompson started teaching computer science and quickly made it most fun class at the school!Full Story
CodeHS is the best learning platform of its kind. I've tried many sites in the last year or so and they don't come close in terms of engagement and challenge. It's the best bar none.
