Computer Science standards are covered in elementary schools in Springfield (through a CS for All collaboration with UMass/Amherst). Middle school implementations are not standardized. In some Springfield schools, students return for high school students who choose Coding for their Science track, training for either the AP Computer Science A (Java) or the AP Computer Science Principles exam.
The Digital Literacy "Humanities" course takes place in a "quarter" (10 weeks) and covers some of the Digital Literacy standards from the Massachusetts Digital Literacy and Computer Science Framework for grades 6-8.
