Salem) – The federal Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS) Grant Program has released a best practices brief co-authored by the Oregon Department of Education (ODE). The best practices brief on stakeholder communications is the first brief of its kind released by the program. The document details strategies and suggests best practices to communicate with SLDS project stakeholders.
ODE staff contributing to the brief include Doug Kosty, Josh Klein, Mickey Garrison and Michael Rebar. In addition to Oregon, other co-authors represent Florida, Georgia, Idaho and Kentucky. The brief was developed in collaboration with Robin Taylor of the SLDS State Support Team at the Institute of Education Sciences.
Though this brief is the first of its kind released by the federal SLDS Grant Program, future best practice briefs are planned. According to the program website, the best practices briefs will “…provide lessons learned and targeted strategies to help states overcome common obstacles to creating a high-quality SLDS.”
