Connecting the Dots: Data Sharing in States and Communities to Better Connect Youth Services Webinar Recording

This growing network of providers creates a greater incentive for the families, city agencies, nonprofits and neighborhood-based organizations to collaborate. It also multiplies the management challenge.

In this webinar our speakers focused on efforts to align community and state data, and about tools to improve effectiveness.

Short Description: 
Many leaders and educators are adopting strategies to expand the learning day, develop deep partnerships in the community and provide a range of supportive out-of-school time programs. The success of these initiatives hinges not on any single investment or organization, but on their collective impact on the student. The student, rather than the school, is increasingly at the center of how communities think about and measure their results.

It can also be useful in assessing the range of reform models and change strategies underway in a district or school at any given time.
