Opportunity Access

Opportunity Access

A growing number of students across the country have access to diverse courses, work-based experiences, and specialty programs of study that empower them to pursue studies aligned with their interests and ambitions after high-school. From traditional and high-tech Career and Technical Education (CTE), Advanced Placement (AP), computer science and arts classes to comprehensive CTE programs of study, International Baccalaureate (IB) and immersive second language programs, there are a wide variety of approaches to providing academics that meet student needs and interests. Which students in which communities have access to any of these though can largely be a factor of local leadership, resources, and community advocacy. Our Course & Program Access work can help state, local, and community leaders explore the appropriate role of the state and local school districts ensuring equitable access to programs and which courses or programs should be available.
