Sharing Information to Support the Educational Success of Children in Care

Sharing Information to Support the Educational Success of Children in Care: Federated Security and Access Protocols Brief

A joint brief published this week by the National Center for Youth Law and the California Department of Education, summarizes a collaborative project that brought together local leaders, policy experts, and stakeholders in California who are focused on improving the educational outcomes of foster youth in the state. The goal of the collaboration was to identify types of data needed to support the educational success of students in foster care; the types of people who could support educational success if given access to such data; and the general categories of data each type of user would need to support the educational success of California's foster youth.

The brief outlines 17 critical core data areas, as well as four major types of users who have a role in supporting the educational success of children in foster care. In addition, the report outlines recommended next steps aimed at carrying on the work of the collaborative.
