Course Access Reflection Questions

Ask yourself these questions, then build a plan to ensure that students have equitable access to rigorous courses.

All students deserve access to an engaging and challenging education that sets them up for success in college or career. But in schools across the country, students of color, multilingual learners, students with disabilities, and those from low-income families are often denied access to advanced or honors courses, compared to their white or higher-income peers.

Staff at the district- and state-wide levels can use these questions to determine if their students have equitable access—and to work toward improving access where they see gaps.
