Strategies for engaging local stakeholders

Utah

  • Local/Primary Stakeholders – UDA partners from grant application onward, represented on UDA Governance Committee, chiefs on Executive Board; Department of Health (early childhood) and the Utah Afterschool Network may be added within next year

  • Utah State Board of Education (K-12)

  • Utah State Board of Regents (higher education)

  • Utah College of Applied Technology Board of Trustees

  • Department of Workforce Services Director

  • Utah Education Network Board (infrastructure)

  • Utah Education Policy Center - University of Utah College of Education (research and coordination)


Strategies for engaging local stakeholders

Utah

  • Secondary Stakeholders – once grant was received informal contacts were made followed by more formal presentations when invited

  • Prosperity 20/20

  • Utah State Legislature

  • Utah K-16 Alliance

  • Utah Governor’s Office of Planning and Budget

  • Utah Governor’s Education Excellence Commission

  • Utah Foundation

  • Salt Lake Chamber

  • Utah Department of Health (early childhood)

  • Utah After School Network


Strategies for engaging local stakeholders

  • Value Add


Missouri3

Missouri

We need their data

  • Unlike the K-12 system, there is no central entity to gather information about Missouri’s youngest children

  • No regulatory authority exists to require all private early childhood and school-age programs to participate in data collection efforts

    We need to resolve data issues together

  • Different datasets use different unique identifiers for people and programs

  • No central authority to require one unique identifier for people and programs across the early childhood field

    We can inform the development/upgrades of many of the data systems to support the SLDS

  • Recommendations for changes to PAT

  • Child Care Aware®/OPEN data partnership


New hampshire1

New Hampshire

  • Help form/change legislation

  • Participation leads to support and buy-in

  • Ongoing interest in and use of data

  • Stakeholders attending DQC meetings

    • Assists with ongoing conversation

    • Continued engagement

    • Helps stakeholders to understand and think about what the department is doing now and how they can help move forward


Strategies for engaging local stakeholders

Utah

  • Input on governance policies and procedures

  • Data sources including metadata

  • Data quality including missing and mismatched data

  • Technical consultation

  • Research agendas

  • Official multi-agency reports

  • Ad hoc reporting needs

  • Suggestions for engaging secondary stakeholders

  • Production of material to explain/promote the value of the UDA/P-20W to secondary stakeholders and the public

  • Management of concerns about security and privacy


Strategies for engaging local stakeholders

Challenges


Missouri4

Missouri

Early childhood is multi-faceted

  • Early care and education

  • Health

  • Mental health

  • Nutrition

  • Special needs

  • Family support


Missouri5

Missouri

Data often stored in multiple locations, even within the same state departments

Data are uncoordinated and often require probabilistic matching (child, program, staff, etc.)

Significant data gaps

Data from the early and extended learning sectors are often “owned” by multiple local, state, and federal partners

Findings could be used to as basis for funding decisions (+/-)


Missouri6

Missouri

Factors that influenced work in Missouri:

Unlike the K-12 system, there is no central entity to gather information about Missouri’s youngest children

No regulatory authority exists to require all private early childhood and school-age programs to participate in data collection efforts

Different datasets use different unique identifiers for people and programs

  • No central authority to require one unique identifier for people and programs across the early childhood field

    Many of the data systems are in transition

  • Recommendations for changes to PAT

  • Child Care Aware®/OPEN data partnership


New hampshire2

New Hampshire

Part of the Process

  • Example: Effective Educator Task Force developed state model for teacher evaluation. Give and take on requirements so that stakeholders ( Superintendents, Principals, Teachers, Unions, Legislature) would buy in.

    Address Concerns

    How will the data be used? Who has control of the data?

    Project Priorities

  • Project focused – shorter engagements, areas of specific interest (i.e. Effective Educator Task Force, EWS Pilot Team)

    Engage the right stakeholders for specific projects

  • Match areas of interest, background, current position


New hampshire3

New Hampshire

Time and Scheduling

  • Meetings later in the day/after hours

  • Go to meetings/webinars

    Long Term Commitment

  • Look for legislative support, work with union representatives, continue to involve educators


Strategies for engaging local stakeholders

Utah

Concerns about displacement of staffs – provide clear definitions of roles of stakeholder staffs vs. UDA staffs, involve stakeholder staffs on technical and governance committees.

Concerns about sustainability and displacement of stakeholders’ existing budgets to support UDA – state budget requests are being made by a “third-party” agency, the governor’s office of planning and budget.

Loss of control over data and information, and displacement of local reporting by UDA– clear governance policies evolved about multi-agency reports, research and information vs single agency reports, research, and information.


Strategies for engaging local stakeholders

Utah

  • Commitment of existing/permanent staffs’ time to the “project” – while stakeholders were assured time would be kept to a minimum it was emphasized that the P-20W would only be of value if such involvement existed at levels sufficient to ensure quality data and information.

  • Need for control over release of data to third parties & privacy – each stakeholder must give approval prior to such action.

  • Concerns about which education reporting and analysis may transition away from the data owning agency – UDA is primarily for multi-agency reporting.

  • Governance of research findings and reports prior to publication – such releases must be agreed upon in data governance documents prior to actual work.


Strategies for engaging local stakeholders

What will success look like?


Missouri7

Missouri

A child record can be identified and linked across multiple datasets using one of two unique variables or a combination of unique child-specific variables

A program can be identified and linked across multiple datasets

A classroom can be identified and linked to the sponsoring program and/or can be linked across multiple datasets

 A child can be linked to a teacher, classroom, program, and/or support services through program or enrollment records

A sufficient sample size is available (child, program, teachers, etc.) to make generalizations


New hampshire4

New Hampshire

Successful when stakeholders:

Become part of the process, way of life.

Ask to participate

Begin to utilize data to link their work with student outcomes and teacher effectiveness

Look beyond the current project and start to think about next steps, opportunities.


Strategies for engaging local stakeholders

Utah

  • The stakeholders’ leadership can define P-20W/SLDS and see the efficiencies of an SLDS

  • Turf battles ensue over who has control of the data and how reports etc. will be governed

  • Stakeholders can articulate not just the reports and ad hoc information/analysis they need from the P-20W/SLDS but can also describe research possibilities

  • Discussions of priorities and sustainability evolve

  • Analysts and/or researchers from respective stakeholders want to know when the data will be available, and where the metadata are

  • Data stewards and techs consider changes in source system to improve the quality of data
