Washington Student Achievement Council

In 2015, legislation to improve access to dual-credit programs and to reduce disparities in access and completion--particularly for low income and underrepresented students--was enacted. The new law focused on expanding access to College in the High School but acknowledged issues in other dual-credit programs and reinforced the notion that cost should not present a barrier in selecting the most appropriate dual-credit option for the individual student. The legislation also requires the Council to report on dual-credit programs and recommend additional improvements to improve access and completion. To improve access and quality, education sector partners have collaborated to: (1) Create and adopt rules to ensure quality standards are rigorous and consistently applied in College in the High School; (2) Develop and implement policies to increase consistency in acceptance of Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) scores; and (3) Improve communication tools to support students considering dual-credit options. Though there has been some progress in increasing access to dual credit, differences in participation and completion by race, ethnicity, and income continue to persist. The report provides recommendations for further action to address these disparities. Five appendices are included: (1) Dual Credit Comparison Chart; (2) Public Baccalaureate Sector Resources; (3) Community and Technical College Resources; (4) Washington 45 and Open Education Resources; and (5) Independent Colleges of Washington Advanced Placement Scores Chart.
