At Rex, we have matched Kentucky 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!
In 2019, Kentucky adopted the CSTA K-12 Computer Science Standards.
“The United States currently has approximately 494,000 unfilled computing jobs, but only 43,000 computer science graduates to fill those jobs (Promoting Computer Science, 2017). As the need for computer science education increases, Kentucky recognizes the benefit of high quality standards to help all students discover how computing and technology shape the world around them. Therefore, the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) engaged with state and local partners to develop the Kentucky Academic Standards for Computer Science which focus on providing students with opportunities to develop fundamental skills essential to all college and career paths; whereby, stimulating Kentucky’s economy and workforce.”

At Rex, we have matched Kentucky’s vision with our own.
Kentucky does not yet require high schools to offer computer science. Some computer science courses may count towards graduation requirements but it is ultimately a district decision.
The state allows accredited teachers to obtain an 8 – 12 endorsement in computer science.
Kentucky aligns quite well to CSTA standards and therefore has five core computer science concepts.
5 Core 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.
