Webinar Agenda (All Webinars)

California Data System Tool Evaluation and Stakeholder Survey

We have asked the members of the Policy & Analytics Advisory Group and the Practice & Operations Advisory Group to evaluate the tools presented in the webinars to provide their input to the Workgroup on the types of tools that should be developed in the first phase of the state data system. At our April 29, 2020 meeting, Workgroup members will be providing their agency’s viewpoint on each of the tools. We also invite the public, educators, and health and social service providers to weigh in on these possible tools by completing this survey (the survey will be open through April 28, 2020). In addition, each webinar, as well as all upcoming meetings, have opportunities for public comment. You can also complete our public comment form or email your comments to Jimi Gilroy at jgilroy@wested.org.
