Course Access policies allow states to offer families choices at the individual course level. From within the confines of a single school building or even at home, students can take a wide range of classes from a list of state-approved providers. From online AP Calculus or language courses to in-person welder and electrician certifications, Course Access promises to bring new opportunities for all students and bring traditional high schools into the 21st century. Drawing on lessons learned from states implementing Course Access, Michael Horn participates in a panel discussion with Jamey Fitzpatrick (Michigan Virtual University, Julie Linn (Texans for Education Reform), Deborah W. Proctor (Minnesota Department of Education) on how to pass, set up, and successfully implement Course Access programs in their own states during a strategy session at the National Summit on Education Reform 2014. John Bailey (Foundation for Excellence in Education) moderates the panel.
