  21. 21. 20 Texas is considered a national leader in K-12 CS Education. • TX was the first state to REQUIRE all HS to offer CS courses. • TX requires high school CS teachers to be certified in CS • TX requires teachers to pass a CS content exam to be CS certified. • TX has state standards for computer science courses. • TX is a leader in the number of Black, Hispanic, and female AP CS enrollees. • TX counts AP Computer Science A as a math credit for graduation. • And…
  22. 22. 21 Languages Other Than English (LOTE) Credit •As of April 2018, TX allows CS I, II, III, AP CSP, AP CS A, & IB CS to count as a LOTE credit (19 TAC, Subchapter 74.12, b, 5, ii.). •AP Computer Science A or IB Computer Science Higher Level can satisfy BOTH one advanced mathematics requirement AND a LOTE requirement for graduation (19 TAC, Subchapter 74.11, k).
  23. 23. 22 HB 3593 - Cybersecurity SBOE must create a Cybersecurity course Pathway • UT’s Center for STEM Education is convening Texas CS Task Force to make recommendations to the TEA on the courses that should be included in the new Cybersecurity pathway. • Courses in the pathway should receive weighted funding – may be CTE. • Cybersecurity course pathway recommendations include at least 1 CS course. • Probably won’t be in effect until 2019-2020 school year.
