Maryland Policies & Resources
In January 2018, Maryland State Department of Education began developing the K-12 computer science standards to improve computer science education across the state.
Shortly after, House Bill 281 was passed requiring all high schools to offer at least one computer science course by school year 2021-2022. School Boards were also asked to make efforts to incorporate computer science in each elementary and middle school, and increase enrollment of female students, students with disabilities, and students of underrepresented ethnic or racial groups.
