Youth Development for Education Results Work Group

The Youth Development for Education Results Work Group is supporting the efforts of the Road Map Project where youth-serving community organizations play an integral role. Youth Development Executives of King County (YDEKC) is the convener for this group. Key work for the work group during 2014-16 includes:

  • Developing an action plan to support stronger partnerships between youth-serving community-based organizations (CBOs) and schools. The plan will outline, document and encourage implementation of effective partnership practices around policy, leadership, data and management practices between schools and CBOs in supporting school success.
  • Supporting effective data sharing and use. The work group will build on efforts to improve data access, data stewardship and data use between schools and CBOs — and between CBOs where appropriate — and support data stewardship and governance practices among CBOs.
  • Advance regional efforts to measure and improve student engagement and motivation. YDEKC, in partnership with the Community Center for Education Results and others, will improve and encourage the continued adoption of student engagement and motivation surveys or equivalent tools for use in schools and CBOs.
  • Support CBO alignment with Road Map Project goals and indicators. Many CBOs intentionally work on various Road Map Project indicators (in addition to motivation and engagement). The work group will identify and explore implementation of models (data coaching or otherwise) that support indicator-focused CBOs.
