How can states and school districts work together to ensure students have equitable access to available high-performing charter schools?
This brief, developed by the Mid-Atlantic Comprehensive Center at WestEd, focuses on the concept of “equitable access,” the idea that students and families have access to information about charter school options and the ability to enroll regardless of where they live, their socioeconomic status, or their education status. The brief discusses three strategies intended to help ensure equitable access, including:
- Unified enrollment systems
- Weighted lotteries
- Comprehensive transportation systems
