One of the trickiest things in implementing new classes is figuring out what state course number it maps to, especially since in Virginia Computer Science can sit in either the math or career and technical ed departments.

The following courses are the most common for housing the ECS course. As the state department of education handles last year’s legislation allowing computer science to count as a science credit this list may expand.
