Ohio Policies & Resources

Even though computer science is not yet required in Ohio, the State Board of Education passed a policy in 2019 (HB 170) that allows computer science to count towards a science or mathematics graduation credit.

In December 2018, Ohio adopted Learning Standards and Model Curriculum for Computer Science which would be implemented in schools by the 2019-2020 school year.
