Because of your support, HB503 was signed into law as Act 174 this summer, marking an important step forward to dramatically increase equity and access in computer science education. The Hawaii State Board of Education (BOE) is now taking up the important discussion of how to further position Hawaii as a leader in helping kids access high-wage, high-growth careers. This memo explains the holistic discussion the BOE will be having this Thursday about Civic Engagement, Financial Literacy, and Computer Science as Graduation Requirements.

Here is sample testimony to help you support computer science education. Our recommendation is for the BOE to strongly consider adding a stand alone credit requirement for graduation, and you’ll see our rationale in the sample.
