CHSA and the Level Up coalition have published Unlocking Potential: A State Policy Roadmap for Equity and Quality in College in High School Programs. This resource can serve as a roadmap for states that want to design policy that drives meaningful change in access, equity, and quality for college in high school programs.
To help states build a policy framework for college in high school programs that will close equity gaps and promote quality, Unlocking Potential details six critical components and provides policy recommendations for each:
- equity goal and public reporting
- program integrity and credit transfer
- course access and availability
- instructor capacity
- navigational supports.
The report also highlights examples from 28 states that have taken steps to build strong state policies.
September 2020 Addition:
CHSA has also released three state profiles of states that have a number of recommended policies already in place across the six framework categories of Unlocking Potential. Click through to read state profiles of Colorado, Indiana, and Washington.
