In order to support its member chief state school officers in making critical decisions about school choice policies, CCSSO has undertaken an effort to encourage the discussion of school choice policies across its membership. As an initial follow-up to its recent policy statement on school choice, CCSSO has attempted to address the often-asked question "What are other states doing?" by creating an ideologically-agnostic landscape analysis of school choice policies across the states. By highlighting policy coverage and characteristics from best available data across the states and for the full spectrum of existing school choice options, the paper intends to help chiefs contextualize their policy sets within national trends. The paper does not comment on which policy sets are "right," nor does it answer questions about outcomes or consequences.
