On November 18, 2021, the Virginia Board of Education received for the first review the proposed Data Science Standards of Learning and Data Science Standards of Learning Curriculum Framework. The proposed Data Science Standards of Learning for Virginia Public Schools would be an addition to the current 2016 Mathematics Standards of Learning. The standards provide an introduction to the learning principles associated with analyzing data sets and can be the basis of a locally-developed high school level one-semester or year-long mathematics course. 


Students will engage in a data science problem solving structure to interact with large data sets as a means to formulate problems, collect and clean data, visualize data, model to predict, and communicate effectively about data formulated solutions. 


The proposed Data Science Standards of Learning can be accessed at the Virginia Department of Education Data Science Standards of Learning webpage. 


Public comments regarding the proposed Data Science Standards of Learning can be emailed directly to VDOE at: vdoe.mathematics@doe.virginia.gov from December 17, 2021–January 31, 2022.
