#CSforAR Completer Cord for Graduation Request Form
The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) Office of Computer Science is pleased to announce that the state is continuing to provide Arkansas seniors with Computer Science Completer graduation cords. These cords are available at no cost to any Arkansas senior (public, private, or homeschooled) that is graduating with at minimum three credits of ADE approved high-school computer science coursework.
Only school counselors/registrars may request these cords for students enrolled in public or private schools. Parents of homeschooled students may request a cord for their child.
The ADE Division of Career and Technical Education (DCTE) fully supports awarding one of these graduation cords to a student that has earned a minimum of three credits of ADE approved high-school computer science coursework; however, DCTE also has a specific designation for “completer” status for school data reporting purposes. The requirements for a student receiving one of the Arkansas CS Completer Cords does not modify existing requirements for a student to be recognized as a completer under DCTE’s reporting requirements.
