Distribute and Discuss

Build Buy-In

Data-sharing discussions can promote active problem solving. When you invite everyone into the discussion, you give them a chance to take part of the responsibility for finding next steps and solutions.

You can share data by sending copies of summary documents to everyone who has an interest in your program, or by presenting the data in a presentation to members of your advisory group, partners, school-day staff and others. Continue the sharing in meetings with your immediate partners. This may include any combination of decision makers, direct providers, students and families.

 

Define Targets

Here are some important points to consider in your discussions:

  • Is our partnership meeting its goals?
  • What factors or conditions could be affecting the results?
  • What changes need to be made to improve the results?
  • Are costs higher or lower than the budgeted amounts?

 

Tip: Leaders of quality 21st CCLC programs gather and review information regularly.
