Use the resources below to help prepare your district or school to implement the NYS CS and Digital Fluency Standards. You can combine resources like the Standards Unpacking Docs and CS Resources Activity Books to create a useful activity for staff members to explore the standards.
The New York State Computer Science and Digital Fluency Standards outline what every student should be learning in grades K-12 throughout the state.
Standards should be implemented by September 2024 and can be taught as standalone courses or integrated into other subject areas based on district preferences.
NYSCATE has partnered with NYSED to provide free access to their Computer Science and Digital Fluency Standards unpacking learning pathway to earn up to 25 hours of CTLE credit. These courses provide theory, discussion, and practice with videos, articles, and resources to implement the new standards. Sign up today:
