Breaking News! Computer Science for Graduation Credit

In case you missed it Washington state now allows computer science to count as a math or science credit towards graduation.

For the IB diploma cs has recently moved from an elective to a science credit.

Here in VA there has been a lot of conversation around where CS should sit at the high school level. For us it currently sits as either a CTE credit or as a math elective after Algebra II.

The issue comes in for kids planning on pursuing more education in technical fields. The reality is they need more than Algebra II.

Does anyone know of any other states moving this direction?
