407. How Do We Know What’s Working: Embracing Data and Assessment in State Expulsion Prevention Strategies
|Date:||Monday July 16, 2018|
|Time:||8:30 AM - 12:00 PM|
This discussion will examine approaches to state policy and data that guide expulsion prevention efforts, exploring the question, “How will we know if our efforts are working?” Arkansas and Colorado will compare their approaches when supporting programs to foster children’s development and respond to challenging behaviors. They will share how they gather data, determine staff needs, and use assessments in their technical assistance and early childhood mental health consultation efforts, and track outcomes that allow for looking at trends and influencing upstream strategies, e.g., professional development and quality improvement.
