2012 SLDS P-20W Best Practice ConferenceData often stored in multiple locations, even within the same state departmentsData are uncoordinated and often require probabilistic matching (child, program, staff, etc.)Significant data gaps Data from the early and extended learning sectors are often owned by multiple local, state, and federal partnersFindings could be used to as basis for funding decisions (+/-)
Missouri152012 SLDS P-20W Best Practice ConferenceFactors that influenced work in Missouri:Unlike the K-12 system, there is no central entity to gather information about Missouris youngest childrenNo regulatory authority exists to require all private early childhood and school-age programs to participate in data collection effortsDifferent datasets use different unique identifiers for people and programsNo central authority to require one unique identifier for people and programs across the early childhood fieldMany of the data systems are in transitionRecommendations for changes to PAT Child Care Aware/OPEN data partnership
Missouri162012 SLDS P-20W Best Practice ConferencePart of the ProcessExample: Effective Educator Task Force developed state model for teacher evaluation. Give and take on requirements so that stakeholders ( Superintendents, Principals, Teachers, Unions, Legislature) would buy in.
Address Concerns How will the data be used? Who has control of the data?
Project PrioritiesProject focused shorter engagements, areas of specific interest (i.e. Effective Educator Task Force, EWS Pilot Team)
Engage the right stakeholders for specific projectsMatch areas of interest, background, current position

Long Term CommitmentLook for legislative support, work with union representatives, continue to involve educators
New Hampshire182012 SLDS P-20W Best Practice ConferenceConcerns about displacement of staffs provide clear definitions of roles of stakeholder staffs vs. UDA staffs, involve stakeholder staffs on technical and governance committees.Concerns about sustainability and displacement of stakeholders existing budgets to support UDA state budget requests are being made by a third-party agency, the governors office of planning and budget. Loss of control over data and information, and displacement of local reporting by UDA clear governance policies evolved about multi-agency reports, research and information vs single agency reports, research, and information.Utah192012 SLDS P-20W Best Practice ConferenceUtah20 Commitment of existing/permanent staffs time to the project while stakeholders were assured time would be kept to a minimum it was emphasized that the P-20W would only be of value if such involvement existed at levels sufficient to ensure quality data and information.Need for control over release of data to third parties & privacy each stakeholder must give approval prior to such action. Concerns about which education reporting and analysis may transition away from the data owning agency UDA is primarily for multi-agency reporting.Governance of research findings and reports prior to publication such releases must be agreed upon in data governance documents prior to actual work.2012 SLDS P-20W Best Practice ConferenceWhat will success look like?212012 SLDS P-20W Best Practice ConferenceA child record can be identified and linked across multiple datasets using one of two unique variables or a combination of unique child-specific variablesA program can be identified and linked across multiple datasetsA classroom can be identified and linked to the sponsoring program and/or can be linked across multiple datasetsA child can be linked to a teacher, classroom, program, and/or support services through program or enrollment recordsA sufficient sample size is available (child, program, teachers, etc.) to make generalizations

Ask to participate
Begin to utilize data to link their work with student outcomes and teacher effectiveness
Look beyond the current project and start to think about next steps, opportunities.New Hampshire232012 SLDS P-20W Best Practice ConferenceUtah24The stakeholders leadership can define P-20W/SLDS and see the efficiencies of an SLDSTurf battles ensue over who has control of the data and how reports etc. will be governedStakeholders can articulate not just the reports and ad hoc information/analysis they need from the P-20W/SLDS but can also describe research possibilitiesDiscussions of priorities and sustainability evolveAnalysts and/or researchers from respective stakeholders want to know when the data will be available, and where the metadata areData stewards and te
