At Rex, we have matched Iowa vision with our own.
Learning to code is comparable to learning reading, writing, and math for this generation. Rex makes this process easy and enjoyable for all!
Computer science has become a new basic skill in today’s economy and Iowa wants to ensure all of our K-12 students are offered high-quality computer science education that prepares them for personal and professional success in a digital world.”
“Iowa’s journey began in 2017 when former Gov. Terry Branstad signed Senate File 274 into law. This bill set the goal that high schools, middle schools and elementary schools would offer high-quality computer science instruction by July 1, 2019. The bill also called for establishing state computer science standards, endorsements for computer science instruction and created a computer science professional development incentive fund.

At Rex, we have matched Iowa’s vision with our own.
House File 2629, signed into law in 2020 by Gov. Kim Reynolds, built on Senate File 274 by requiring, for the first time, that K-12 schools provide computer science instruction.
School districts are encouraged to allow computer science courses that meet state computer science standards and include math content to count as math credits for students who have completed other courses covering the required state math standards. In addition, a computer science course may fulfill a math requirement for graduation if the course meets state academic standards in math.
Iowa aligns to CSTA and ISTE and therefore has five Core Computer Science Concepts:
Works at home, in class, and on Chromebooks.
Aligns with state and national education standards.
Built for schools. Private, simple, and secure.
No CS degree necessary. Optional teacher included.
Detailed reporting tools and auto-grading.
Real coding and real projects with realtime feedback.
