Computer Science Helps Prepare Wyoming Students
Written by Andrew-Rossi on March 30, 2018
The state Legislature this month approved a measure that would require Wyoming K-12 schools to provide all students with computer science instruction.
Senator Hank Coe of Cody, who is chair of the Senate Education Committee, says the law will help prepare Wyoming students for the well-paying technology jobs of the future.
Gov. Matt Mead signed off on the bill, which will become law this year. But Coe says that implementing the new rule will take time.
Under the bill, schools would be required to provide computer science instruction to all students in each grade and provide standards on what students at each grade level are expected to master in computer science. The new course will be offered in all schools by the 2022-23 school year.
