Cradle to Career System Forms Data Task Forces

Published On: June 2, 2022

The Office of Cradle-to-Career Data, a data system that tracks education outcomes, has formed a pair of task forces made up of data experts that will meet four times to discuss data-driven definitions for teaching and employment, per an announcement.

The Teacher Data Taskforce will “develop definitions for teacher preparation programs, teacher credentialing, teacher placement, and teacher retention” based on information collected by California universities. 

The Employment Data Taskforce will develop similar education and earnings-related definitions based on information collected by the Employment Development Department. 

All four meetings will be held on Zoom in June and July and will be open to the public. Meetings will be posted on the C2C website that day.

Recently, Cradle-to-Career signed legal agreements with 15 agencies and education organizations to pave the way for new data sets on student progress throughout the state’s education system.
