In this session, participants will explore a hypothetical state scenario where they will examine child outcomes data disaggregated by race, ethnicity, and other factors. Participants will work with each other and TA providers to propose the critical questions that they want to ask and develop analysis plans and an action plan based on the unfolding information provided during the session.
In this session, we will provide information on how to analyze Family Outcomes data to identify program improvement opportunities for addressing response rate representativeness and equity. We will describe an example of a self-assessment tool adapted using the Family Outcomes Measurement System Framework that some states are currently using to examine Family Outcomes representativeness and equity.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, many states continue to provide Part C and 619 services online or via a hybrid model of remote and in-person. For programs that have moved to in-person, access is often limited to only children and staff. As a result, challenges have emerged in determining the best ways to provide practice-based coaching to support practitioners with the implementation of evidence-based practices.
Data visualization is a powerful tool to report many types of data, including qualitative data. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, state and local Part C and 619 programs have had to think creatively and strategically about how to provide services to children and families in a virtual environment due to in-person restrictions and school closures.
Join a panel of state leaders who will share their roles in the development and pilot of the Part C and Part B/619 Leadership Initiative sponsored by the Early Childhood Personnel Center (ECPC). Strengthening the knowledge and skills of the Part C and Part B 619 coordinators leads to enhanced effectiveness and retention of these critical state system leaders.
Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, data linking has never been more urgent. Fortunately, technologies and administrative supports make linking feasible for Part C/619 data leaders. Participants will learn about the many considerations and benefits associated with internal agency data linking and agency-to-agency data linking.
