Texas K-12 Computer Science Policies
Texas has been a leader in computer science education for years. The State Board of Education adopted a Long-Range Plan for Public Education that establishes goals through the year 2030. The goal is to provide children access to the resources they need to learn, thrive, and grow. This reflects a desire to have equitable access to funding, advanced courses (including computer science) and modern technology.
According to the Technology Applications Curriculum Requirement, every Texas district must offer computer science 74.3(b)(2)(I) and each student must have the opportunity to participate in Computer Science II or AP Computer Science 74.3(b)(4).Learn More
