States leaders are increasingly working to expand access and improve equity in college in high school programs such as dual and concurrent enrollment that provide high school students with the ability to earn college credit. However, students with disabilities are too often excluded from these opportunities.
Students with disabilities (SWDs) represent approximately 14 percent of all public school students, yet in 2018 represented only 3.9% of students enrolled in dual enrollment courses. This reality carries significant equity implications for both college and career success for these students.
In 2019, the College in High School Alliance (CHSA) released a six-part state policy framework for achieving equity and quality in college in high school programs and recently created a supplemental report to increase participation for SWDs.
This session will provide an overview of the research paper and feature a discussion of the obstacles that students with disabilities face in accessing college in high school policies and recommendations to overcome them.
