This guide, published by the College in High School Alliance, is organized around three state and three national imperatives for achieving student access and success in dual enrollment programs. First, to accomplish this vision, states must set a statewide vision for dual enrollment, prioritize addressing and closing equity gaps and focus policy on intentional dual enrollment experiences. Next, the national priorities for supporting dual enrollment include setting a national vision by raising expectations for policy support, aligning the field on key terms to establish a common language and examining new and emerging trends across the national dual enrollment landscape. State and national education leaders should consider the guiding questions and state case study examples as tools to inform how they are able to increase the number of students benefiting from participating in dual enrollment programs. Dual enrollment is an embedded best practice within career pathways, personalized, competency-based learning, and youth apprenticeship programs, and has roles to play in big education policy debates like making community college free for all students.
