West Virginia is a pioneer in creating a Computer Science K-12 pathway for all students with a special emphasis on expanding to elementary schools and K-12 schools in a rural setting. WV’s innovative approach requires the WVBE to adopt a policy detailing the appropriate level of CS instruction at each educational level. Senate Bill 267 charged WVDE with creating a plan to reach all WV students with Computer Science. This new law makes WV one of the first states to require all students to start their CS education in elementary school and be exposed to a variety of CS experiences throughout their K-12 career.
