BUILD
O
YOUR CASE
USING DATA TO ATTRACT, INTEGRATE, AND CELEBRATE PARTNERS

THE RIGHT COMPONENTS

ne of the most daunting tasks in finding and developing new partnerships
is convincing organizations to dedicate
resources to your after-school or
summer learning program. To ensure success,
you must first know how to collect your data,
and then you must learn how to leverage it.

BUILDING YOUR DATA SYSTEM

A data system framework has
three key components:

The following strategies encourage the
success of data system-building efforts:

People. Stakeholders (individuals,
institutions, organizations) involved in the
operation of the after-school or summer
learning program and the dynamic
connections among them.

Start small.
Processes. Routines, norms, and practices
that evolve and are repeated over time. They
include collecting, organizing, analyzing, and
using data to meet goals and inform the
operation of the after-school or summer
learning program.

Technology. The means by which data are
organized and accessed to inform the
operation of the after-school or summer
learning program, including hardware and
software systems.

Don't take on too much at
once. Create a limited set of
goals for data collection and
use or a limited set of
providers piloting a new data
system. You can always
scale up later.

Provide ongoing
training.

Provide coaching and
development manuals to
mitigate the effects
of staff turnover and further
develop more experienced and
engaged staff.

Access expertise.

There are many ways to go
about this. You may want to
identify a research partner who
participated in all phases of
your data system's
development. Or you may wish
to leverage that relationship
primarily to access, analyze,
and report the data those
providers have collected. Or
you may wish to identify
internal staff to provide this
support to the data system.
Whatever you choose, having
dedicated staff with skills in
data analytics is essential.
