Linking data between state K-12 and workforce data systems can help agencies develop shared career readiness goals for learners and the state. This report from the Data Quality Campaign and the Workforce Data Quality Campaign examines steps states can take to facilitate K-12 and workforce data linkages. The report outlines recommendations to achieve effective implementation of K-12 and workforce data linkages across six key areas:
- Shared vision;
- Cross-agency data governance;
- Data matching and sharing;
- Data analysis and use;
- Capacity building; and
- Privacy and security.
A useful tool for stakeholders interested in improving state data systems, the report also includes federal policy considerations.
