Children in out-of-home care are in educational crisis. By collecting and sharing data, we can learn why.
This guide explores how child welfare and education agencies can best work to improve data collection and information sharing—individually and together. It provides details on legal and policy considerations and examples from jurisdictions around the country engaging in this important work.
The guide also offers assessment tools that help agencies define:
- Data collection and sharing goals
- Population they will track
- Current and desired data collection and sharing activities
These tools are designed for agencies to use on their own or as a first step in a collaborative process.
