Focus on P-16 Partnerships.
L'Orange, Hans P., Ed.
Network News, v22 n1 Aug 2003
This issue of "Network News" takes a look at emerging P-16/K-16 partnerships and data systems. The first article, "P-16 Data and Accountability Systems," by Hans L'Orange and Rick Voorhees (an adaptation of a policy brief) looks at data being used for accountability within P-16 systems and provides some general characteristics of these systems. The article also offers a closer look at data systems in both the K-12 and postsecondary environments. The next article, "Partnerships and Promising State Practices," looks at three promising state programs in this area, discussing: (1) the large data repository of Texas; (2) Florida's education data warehouse; and (3) the importance of K-16 partnerships in development areas in Maryland. An introduction is then provided to the State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO) project "Building Statewide K-16 Systems for Student Success." The issues concludes with a few recommended resources in this area and introductions to the Network's new data analyst and senior research analyst. (SLD)
