You Can't Point Fingers at Data: Using Data to Influence Practice and Policy in a Strategic K12-Community College Partnership
How Data Moved the Work Forward
Our method: data was the centerpiece

Linking data created a neutral space

Started easy & gave us an early win
Non-controversial data
Quick and easy to analyze & interpret
Let voices be heard

Created pressure for institutions to act
Analysis:
Loss points
Early Warning Indicators

Actions:
Early Registration
Matriculation process into the HS's
Retake test policy
Math "bump up"
Multiple measures
Counselor Collaboration
Frisco Day
Effective K12/CC Partnership Practices
Partnership attuned to local realities of your local community

Careful communication - keep it neutral and about "our kids"

Each institution to assign a practitioner to champion the work

Funding should be shared

Define shared goals

Conduct a pilot - show data - policy reform
Effective Practices for K12/CC Partnership
Strategic, intentional and grounded in data driven decisions

Data should be transparent

When possible, third party to conduct data can provide an objective analysis

Researchers need to present findings in a clear concise manner

Analyses should be complemented with input from practitioners and students

Data was siloed

Limited opportunity to ask follow up questions to HS data

Not grounded in shared data

Blame game

Collaborate with Unions

Coffee meetings before meetings
Data road show
Urgency for Chancellor to act
Maureen
Oded

Communicate! Up, down sideways
No gotchas
Prep meetings - nurture relationships
Speaking tour to existing groups in district
Listen so you can leverage work already existing

Listen to stakeholders at all levels
Be responsive to timelines
Focus only on essential data story, rather than details
