At Rex, we have matched Tennessee’s vision with our own.

At Rex Academy, we are dedicated to building quality computer science education for all ages. Our core belief is that computer science should be available to all learners as it is a gateway to many opportunities.

Learning to code is comparable to learning reading, writing, and math for this generation. Rex makes this process easy and enjoyable for all!

On October 22, 2018, Arizona's State Board of Education voted to adopt new K-12 Computer Science Standards.

Tennessee has recently written new standards for computer science for the K-8 environment. The new benchmarks have started reaching classrooms in 2019. Due to low participation in computer science, state officials have stated that the goal is to focus on introducing students to the basics of computer systems and programs.

Other than coding and computer programming which can operate as standalone classes, the rest of the skills are to be integrated into existing core classes in English, math, science, and social studies.

School districts will have some discretion as to how to add coding and programming instruction into the mix.

State Of Tennessee Requirements

Tennessee does not yet require that all high school must offer computer science as an elective credit.

Computer science may count as math credits for graduation.

In February 2019, Governor Bill Lee announced the Future Workforce Initiative aimed at increasing access to CTE and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) including computer science.

Tennessee has six Core Computer Science concepts for K-8:

  1. Foundational Concepts and Operations (FCO)
  2. Communication and Collaboration (CC)
  3. Analytical and Innovative Thinking (AIT)
  4. Digital Citizenship (DC)
  5. Information Storage and Access (ISA)
  6. Coding and Computer Programming (CCP)
