Arizona Computer Science Standards Development Process & Documents
Computer Science Standards Development Process & Documents
The process to develop new Computer Science Standards is scheduled to begin late January. We hope you will consider applying for the opportunity to participate in this important work. The Arizona Department of Education is looking for K-12 educators, higher education/post-secondary educators, and industry partners from across the state to serve on the computer science standards working groups. The standards review process will use an accordion model for committee selection; an individual might be selected to serve once or multiple times, depending on the focus of the work and their expertise. Working group members who are unable to serve for a particular meeting due to schedule conflicts or other concerns are still eligible to be selected to participate in future meetings.
Public comment for the current DRAFT Arizona Computer Science Standards closes August 10, 2018.
