Tracking Post-Release Outcomes

Nicholas Read, technical assistance liaison, NDTAC, and Liann Seiter, research associate, NDTAC

This session began with a brief discussion on the importance of and challenges related to collecting student outcome data from youth following their release from residential placement. Participants shared various practices (e.g., legislation, memoranda of agreement, data sharing) and tools (e.g., surveys and integrated electronic data systems) designed to overcome the challenges of collecting post-release student outcome data. Participants also planned next steps for improving such data collection and reporting in their State.
