New resource aims to create a roadmap for complex data partnerships

data-DQCEducators now have access to a playbook created as an effort to help school districts develop data-driven initiatives for student support and achievement.

“Data Drives School-Community Collaboration: Seven Principles for Effective Data Sharing,” a collaboration between the Data Quality Campaign and StriveTogether, also focuses on putting complex data partnerships in place.

“Effective data sharing between schools and communities is crucial to improve decision making at all levels and address the underlying challenges facing children,” said Chris Kingsley, associate director of local policy and advocacy at the Data Quality Campaign.

Kingsley added: “Schools and their partners have access to more data than ever. This resource can help schools and communities put that data to work to serve the whole child, in and out of the classroom, and empower communities to be full partners in the educational mission of their schools.”
