{{CurrentPage.Title}}

The Illinois State Board of Education curated the following free resources to assist districts, teachers, and parents. The intent is to provide free or temporarily free learning resources for teachers and parents to support student learning. These resources do not represent an endorsement or recommendation of curriculum or eLearning systems.​​

 Computer Science and Computer Literacy – Public Act 101-0654

  • Public Act 101-0654

  • ​Computer Literacy

    Beginning with the 2022-23 school year, all school districts shall ensure that students receive developmentally appropriate opportunities to gain computer literacy skills at each grade level K-12. Additionally, students entering ninth grade in the 2022-23 school year and each school year thereafter must participate in one year of a course that includes intensive instruction in computer literacy, which may be English, social studies, or any other subject and that may be counted toward the fulfillment of other graduation requirements.

    “Computer literacy” is broadly defined as one’s knowledge of and ability to use computers and related technologies efficiently and effectively. More specifically, computer literacy includes knowing what constitutes a computer, the uses and applications for computers, and the impact of computers on society.​

  • Computer Science

    Beginning with the 2023-24 school year, all school districts that maintain any grades 9-12 shall provide an opportunity for every high school student to take at least one computer science course aligned to rigorous learning standards of the Illinois State Board of Education.

    “Computer science” means the study of computers and algorithms, including their principles, their hardware and software designs, their implementation, and their impact on society. Computer science does not include the study of everyday uses of computers and computer applications, such as keyboarding or accessing the internet.

    ISBE convened a work group to provide the field with supplemental resources to support educators in teaching computer science.

    A listing of the courses from the Illinois State Course Catalog that are designated as computer science and information on qualifications for teachers of those courses has been developed.

 TEAACH - Public Act 102-0044

​The Teaching Equitable Asian American Community History (TEAACH) Act amends the Illinois School Code to ensure that students in every public elementary and high school in Illinois learn about the contributions of Asian Americans to the economic, cultural, social, and political development of the United States.

Beginning with the 2022-23 school year, every public elementary school and high school shall include in its curriculum a unit of instruction studying the events of Asian American history, including the history of Asian Americans in Illinois and the Midwest, as well as the contributions of Asian Americans toward advancing civil rights from the 19th century onward.

ISBE convened a work group to create a one-page document and supplemental educational resources to assist educators in providing instruction on Asian American history.

 Additional Tools

​Additional Tools to consider for continuing education and e-learning:

Also, all educators in Illinois have free access to EdLeaders Network to continue work on their own professional learning during this time.​

***According to the team at the EdLeaders Network, these is  a considerable influx of districts and individuals seeking access to ELN.  Due to the volume of requests, uploading staff, and granting access to the Learning Management System is taking longer than usual. Additionally, because of a larger than normal number of users wanting taking advantage of ELN, responding to support tickets is taking longer than usual. As they work through the queue of both uploading staff and support tickets, they appreciate your patience and understanding.***
