New Computer Science Framework
This past year ACM, CSTA, Code.org, CIC, and NMSI are joined forces with more than 100 advisors within the computing community (higher ed faculty, researchers, and K-12 teachers), several states and large school districts, technology companies, and other organizations to steer a process to build a framework to help answer these questions. The framework is designed to  identify key K-12 computer science concepts and practices we expect students exiting grades 2, 5, 8, and 12 to know. States and school districts can use the framework to create their own frameworks, guidance, and standards. Underpinning this effort is our belief that computer science provides foundational learning benefiting every child. Computer science gives students a set of essential knowledge and skills important for students’ learning and for their future careers and interests. https://k12cs.org/
