Data Culture Toolkit

Data Culture Tile

The DaSy toolkit is a resource containing information, guidance, and templates to help Part C and Part B 619 program staff build effective data teams and support conditions for a culture of data use at the state and local levels. The toolkit is organized around key steps to building a culture of data use in your state or local team. Each step includes an overview, considerations and data team resources (e.g., videos, infographics, templates, and blogs), and tips for how to use resources included in each section.
