This section outlines steps to create a data improvement strategy that draws on the needs identified in Section 2. To create lasting state- or systems-level change, it is important to have buy-in and commitment from all education levels and partner agencies. Make sure you have the right partners at the table before you complete the plan of action. Building a cross-functional career readiness data team at the planning stage can help secure support and ensure consensus before beginning the work.
If you haven't already, visit Section 2 to complete your State- or System-Level Needs Assessment. You will use the results of the assessment to develop your Plan of Action below.
