Greendale Schools will share its journey from tracked academic classes to honors and AP access for all students. The process began with observing the significant disparities in standardized test results by race and economic status. By analyzing the system responsible for those outcomes, the district engaged in a multiyear effort to raise the floor. The results are double-digit increases in the number of high school students achieving college-level standards, and, more importantly, high expectations for all students, thus reducing the disparities between demographic groups.
