Submit Comments to the Cradle-to-Career Data System Data & Tools Advisory Board

The Cradle-to-Career Data System – Data & Tools Advisory Board will be meeting on Thursday, October 12 to discuss pending proposals related to the data elements. The Cradle-to-Career Data System is a statewide longitudinal data system that aims to link existing education, workforce, financial aid, and social service information to equip policymakers, educators, and the public to address disparities and improve outcomes throughout the state.

The Data & Tools Advisory Board is reviewing proposals for additional data points that are not on the P20W list. Currently, key data elements on the P20W list related to education and workforce include student demographics, apprenticeship, wage, social services, and student financial aid. The community is encouraged to participate in these meetings where decisions on data points are being made. View the advisory board proposal process and a list of the pending proposals here
