MDE must set K-12 schools computer science curriculum by the 2024-25 academic year

A new law will require the Mississippi Department of Education to set a computer science curriculum for K-12 schools by the 2024-25 academic year.

Governor Tate Reeves signed House Bill 633 on Wednesday and it will become law July 1st.

C-Spire pushed for the new law, saying Mississippi employers have unfilled jobs because they need more people trained in computer and information technology.

The C-Spire Foundation announced in January that it was committing $1 million to help Mississippi school districts start computer science classes.
