Accountability for Alternative Education: Lessons Learned from States and Districts

Last year, the nation’s high school graduation rate reached a record high of 82.3%. Despite this progress, however, data show that there is a continued need to ensure that students with the highest risk of dropping out have access to high-quality alternative educational opportunities that adequately prepare them for college, careers, and life. In this webinar, presenters will explore the challenges and opportunities of accountability for alternative education, along with promising practices from states and districts who have developed accountability measures and systems that are inclusive of all students in all types of educational settings. 

Presenters include:

  • Jennifer L. DePaoli, Senior Education Advisor, Civic Enterprises
  • Jessica Knevals, Principal Consultant, Accountability and Data Analysis Office, Colorado Department of Education
  • A representative from Portland Public Schools
  • Carinne Deeds, Policy Associate, American Youth Policy Forum
