Abstract
In this case study, I explore equity of access to programs in the Youth Train in Trades program in the Langley School District. Specifically, I examined geographical access to training programs, ease of access to online program registration information, and student race and gender representation in social media postings by the district. I used data that are publicly available and published by the district, including the district's Career Education website and social media pages. From this analysis, I conclude that more work must be done by the district to ensure all students have equitable access to program information. Additionally, transportation and geographical access to school locations is not equitable for all students and that work must be done to increase diversity representation throughout the district's social media postings.
