Osage community schools are committed to computer science. They are so committed, that Gov. Kim Reynolds invited some of the younger students and faculty to the capital to be recognized during yesterday’s Condition of the State address.
Reynolds went on to invite the Osage students to rise for a standing ovation – showcasing the support legislators have for this pursuit. But according to Osage Superintendent Barb Schwamman, not everyone is completely stoked with Osage mandating computer science.
Osage is currently teaching computer science courses from elementary school through high school. In these courses, students learn coding and app creation. Reynolds believes the entire state needs to make these courses essential.
