There is a national movement to encourage states to create computer science graduation requirements. The Massachusetts legislature is now considering additional policy levers, including a computer science graduation requirement, to broaden participation by students in computer science coursework (see Chapter 268, 7009-6601).
 
The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has commissioned SageFox Consulting Group and CSforMA to create a National Landscape Analysis Report. This report provides an overview of states with and without a graduation requirement, and the initiatives they put into place to support their implementation. Focus group participants will discuss the report.
 
Please read the report (coming soon!) and attend the informational webinar listed below prior to attending the focus group, if possible, so that you are familiar with the content and can dive right into the discussion..
