Counting Computer Science as Math Credit

By February 26, 2015 No Comments

HF672, sponsored by Rep. Sarah Anderson (R-Plymouth), would allow students to satisfy a math credit required for high school graduation by taking a computer science course that meets state math standards. The bill was laid over Tuesday by the House Education Innovation Policy Committee for possible omnibus bill inclusion. It has no Senate companion.

Officials from the Minnesota Department of Education testified that while the department hasn’t officially endorsed the bill, leaders are supportive of the idea and willing to work with Anderson on language that reflects the department having oversight on that issue.
