Several folks have asked about the PEIMS number for the new AP CS Principles course. Thanks to Hal Speed of TACSE for providing this succinct summary on the status of assigning a PEIMS number.

On November 19, 2015, the Committee on Instruction discussed adding AP CSP to Tech Apps and recommended to the full board to add the course.

On January 29, 2016 in the General Meeting of the SBOE, the first reading and filing authorization for adding AP CSP to Tech Apps was included in the consent agenda and passed.

On April 8, 2016 in the General Meeting of the SBOE, this will be scheduled for second reading and final adoption. Although we can’t be 100% confident of what the SBOE will do, I have no reason to believe it will not pass on the consent agenda. This will mean we should have a PEIMS number after the April mtg and it will be listed with the Tech Apps courses just like AP CS A.
