Nevada K-12 Computer Science Policies

In the last couple of years, Nevada has made great strides to improving computer science education within the state. In June 2017, the Senate Bill 200 was signed. It requires Nevada high schools to offer a computer science courses and requires that all students receive instruction in computer science before 6th grade. This includes increasing the effort to enroll girls, students with disabilities and underrepresented minorities. High schools have until 2022 to offer a course that will satisfy Nevada’s 9-12 CS standards.

Nevada K-12 computer science standards based on the K-12 Computer Science Framework and 2017 CSTA K-12 Standards were approved in January 2018. The Nevada standards consist of expectations for a combination of individual grades and grade bands (from K-12) and the 9-12 standards include basic and advanced expectations. They also provide connections to standards in science, mathematics, English language arts, and social studies.

CodeHS Nevada Computer Science Standards Alignment

All of the main courses offered in the CodeHS 5-12 pathway are aligned to Nevada’s Computer Science and Technology Standards including the required half credit course, Nevada Computer Science and Applications.

CodeHS offers the most comprehensive course pathway across grades 6-12, starting with introductory level block programming courses all the way up to AP level text-based programming courses in many languages.
