EffectiveEvidenceEfficient Similar organizations collecting quality data for the same outcomes in a coordinated and collaborative network Similar organizations collecting quality data that align under similar outcomes for broad community impact Similar organizations collecting quality data, but uncoordinated and isolated Alignment Accountability *This document is meant to be a conceptualization of the context of academic and social programming which impact student success.

Data Criteria The indicator must be a valid measure of concepts outlined on the birth to career framework‘s Student Roadmap to Success, measuring student success from birth through post-secondary and into a career. The indicator must be easily understandable to local stakeholders. The indicator must be reasonably similar across jurisdictions. The data underlying the indicator must be produced by a reputable source. All or most of the indicators must be affordable to gather and report. The data should be available consistently over time. Each indicator should be useful in the day to day work of educators and organizations working to improve student outcomes. Data must be disaggregated (or disaggregate-able) to identify differences among different groups of students. Although priority is given to using existing data sources, it is possible that consensus will emerge around the creation of new indicators and measures. We should utilize data points that are most likely to generate synergy across multiple organizations. The number of indicators for each goal area should be kept to a minimum for the sake of clarity and simplicity.
Prenatal care, quality child care, Head Start and full day kindergarten programs are not reaching all eligible children. In-school and out-of-school programs are not reaching all parts of the region. More coordination of data collection is needed. A higher percentage of Asian and white students are enrolling in OUS institutions than students of color. Enrollment in higher education is increasing. Degree completion rates in community colleges and universities are in a range of 35-60 percent with students of color less likely to graduate. Education attainment impacts income and employment status. Significant differences in academic achievement and high school graduation rates exist among students of color, students of limited English proficiency and students with disabilities compared to whites. Poverty is increasing in the county.
Challenges How can our youngest and most vulnerable children all receive the best start possible prior to entering school? How can we develop a more comprehensive, community- wide system of support for students inside and outside of school? How can we create successful responses to improve academic achievement and graduation rates? How can we improve the readiness levels of students for post-secondary education? How can we increase the number of students successfully completing post-secondary education?
Why Are Universities Leading P-20 Efforts? Strong ties to the community History of partnerships with P-12 schools Scholarship and research capacity Ability to convene partners including business and community leaders Part of the P-20 system Need to improve education at all levels is great
University-School Initiatives University and community partners collaborate on identifying a significant area of need Addressing the area of need will provide meaningful, positive impact on educational outcomes in the region The area of need lends itself to scholarship that informs possible solutions The potential strategy lends itself to third-party funding opportunities that enhance the work of the university and the partner.
The Opportunity How can we align our scholarship and expertise with the educational needs of our community? Are there themes around which we can organize? What kind of support would be needed to make this work? How can we better connect with each other to make it happen?
University Support The Office of Academic Affairs and the Provost will provide planning funds to incent the development of campus projects that contribute to educational improvement in our region. The purpose of today is to gather your ideas and input into how we move these ideas and connections on campus forward. Can we identify colleagues who are working on similar issues and develop “research groups” that could respond to the RFP?
