House committee substitute amends the 1st edition as follows.
Modifies the proposed changes to GS 115C-12, which adds annual computer science reporting to the duties of the State Board of Education (SBE). Now specifies that the SBE is to annually report to the Joint Legislative Education Oversight Committee. Changes the report due date to November 15 (was, September 15). Amends the required data for each item of the report to include (1) statewide data for the current school year, and the four years prior when data is available, to establish trends in computer science instruction, and (2) data for the current school year for each public school unit, disaggregated by school (previously required for each item statewide data for the most recent year available, and the four years of data prior, when available, and data for each local school administrative unit and charter school, when available). Requires the report to indicate when statewide courses and elective computer science or computational thinking courses are offered on a semester basis by public school units.
