Computer Science Licensing Guidance
A new guidance document on license requirements for teaching computer science courses can be found at http://tepdl.dpi.wi.gov/sites/default/files/imce/tepdl/pdf/Computer-Science-Guidance.pdf. This document shows the difference between Computer Science and other aspects of K-12 education that involve computers (e.g., Technology/Computer Literacy and Fluency, Educational Technology, Information Technology). It identifies the criteria that make up a Computer Science course and lists the Coursework Completion System (CWCS) course codes that require a teacher to hold a license in Computer Science.
