Innovations In Accountability Measures & Processes: Three Case Studies for Alternative Education


As states continue to grapple with the most appropriate ways to hold schools accountable under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), there is a lack of consensus on how alternative settings should fit into accountability systems and whether those systems should be separate from or included in accountability systems for traditional schools. AYPF has compiled three short case studies to provide a deeper look into innovations in accountability across the country, including how accountability can be relevant to alternative education.
