South Carolina Policies & Resources

The South Carolina Department of Education has mandated computer science since 1997. But many students fulfilled the high school graduation requirement by taking a half-credit course in keyboarding.

Times are changing! Based on proposed amendments State Board of Education Regulation 43-234, Keyboarding was eliminated as an option for fulfilling the one-half of the Computer Science requirement beginning with the 2018–19 school year.

By May 2017, The K-8 South Carolina Computer Science and Digital Literacy Standards for K-8 were approved to expand availability of computer science education to all students in South Carolina. Shortly after, in August 2018, South Carolina developed computer science standards for high school in response to growing employment opportunities in computer science around the state.
