Ensuring Access for All Students
The National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA) released a video about how charter school authorizers across the country are working to expand and ensure all students have access to quality schools. Rashida Young, our Senior Manager of Equity and Fidelity discusses how we address access:
- By monitoring unintentional and intentional barriers that may prevent a family from applying or enrolling into a school (DC PCSB communicates any barriers to the school so they can be removed);
- Determining whether schools are doing all they can to keep students in their schools; and,
- Understanding if there are particular groups of students exiting the school more than another group of students.
