Look below for Computer Science MN Standards and Common Terms.
The Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards set the expectations for achievement in every content area (Physical Education, The Arts, Science, English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Mathematics) for K-12 students in Minnesota. Beginning in 2017 computer science was identified as an important skill and each standard development committee has used the Minnesota Information and Technology Educators of Minnesota (ITEM) Standards, The K-12 Computer Science Framework, and the Computer Science Teachers Association K-12 Computer Science Standards to explore connections to their respective content area. Computer science content and practices are integrated at the benchmark level.
See the document below for the Minnesota K-12 Integrated Computer Science Benchmarks, from the Minnesota Department of Education.
We believe in CS because…
Our goal is to continue Computer Science Education throughout our school to provide the students with a deep foundation of knowledge and experience.
We hope to provide the future with Computer Scientists who have a curiosity to explore a variety of CS fields, enabling them to increase career opportunities and better serve our communities.
