LAUSD First to Track Post-Secondary Outcomes of Foster Youth

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Board of Education has approved resolution establishing a data sharing agreement that will allow the state’s largest district to track foster youth post-secondary educational outcomes.

The resolution will allow LAUSD to gather aggregate level data about which foster youth are enrolling in college, how they perform, which factors support their success, and which factors impose barriers. Additionally, it allows LAUSD to collaborate with Ed Results to support the creation of reports on foster youth college and career trajectories that can inform policies and practices that support foster youth college and career success.
