Show equal access to A-to-G courses
How do we show that we’re providing relatively equal access to A-to-G courses to everyone?
What we did: Using state data, we looked at the percentage of all enrollments by white and Latino/Hispanic students that were in A-to-G level courses. Then we put the client’s data in the context of the 15 districts whose students most closely resembled their own.
What they did: They discovered that in math and science, their district had a larger percentage of Latino/Hispanic students enrolled in A-to-G courses than any of the other 15 districts. And in history/social science and English, their own students were about in the middle of the pack. They took this, together with the pattern of improvement over the past six years, and shared it at community meetings, board meetings, and at an annual meeting with realtors.
