Time: Tuesday, April 17, 2018 from 10:45 – 12:00 pm
Room: Yorktown

ABSTRACT

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) presents a unique opportunity for states and districts to help more young people enter and complete college by implementing school designs that improve the transition between high school and higher education such as dual enrollment, concurrent enrollment, and early college high school, and explicitly defines and encourages states to use these approaches. As a result, there has been significant growth in the inclusion of dual enrollment and early college in state accountability systems, growing from 14 under previous federal requirements to 33 under ESSA. This session will examine the provisions in ESSA supporting dual enrollment and early college. In addition, the presenter will discuss best practices and how districts can work with states going forward to confront the challenges of ensuring that equity is a central focus of the work ahead so that low income and under-represented students are integral to the expansion of college in high school.
