Abstract: 

Presented at the 2011 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference. A three state panel engaged participants in discussion and shared lessons learned about their experiences in collecting, analyzing, and linking early childhood data with public school data. Maryland, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina are three premier states whose processes for ensuring data collected birth to school age are linked to important K-12 and post-secondary outcomes. The objectives of the session were: (1) experience discourse among colleagues about the importance of quality early childhood data collection and linkage to K-12, including exemplary uses of early childhood data among children with disabilities; (2) hear from state experts about their state early childhood data systems and how they have used data to impact program, funding, and training decisions; and (3) develop an awareness about how different approaches for linking agency data across programs can improve child outcomes and lead to changed local and state policy.
