C3N and Data Sharing Overview

  1. 1. College and Credential Completion Network (C3N) Data Sharing InitiativeNETWORK DESCRIPTION: As the post-secondary change network of Raise DC, thecradle to career initiative of Washington, DC, C3N brings together local college accessproviders (CAPs), government agencies, philanthropic foundations, institutions of higherlearning, community-based organizations (CBOs), and non-profits. The networkoperates out of the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE), which staffsthe network and is the primary source of budgets funds. Network members strivecollectively to improve DC students’ access to and success in both college and credentialprograms. Through monthly roundtables and quarterly leadership meetings, ourmembers coordinate resources, share best practices and data, and cooperate oninnovative initiatives, all the while leveraging each other and improving overall programefficacy in the process.INITIATIVE DESCRIPTION: The ambitious Data Sharing Initiative, which aims to createa comprehensive map of CAP services across the District, will allow C3N to find gaps andoverlaps in CAP services. Interested C3N college access providers sign a data sharingagreement with OSSE, which stipulates that they will provide student level data –students’ names, dates of birth, and the services which they are receiving – in exchangefor the corresponding student level data that OSSE stores in SLED, the StudentLongitudinal Education Database system. The SLED data includes studentdemographics, test scores, and free and reduced meals status, among other fields. Thisknowledge enables our members to more effectively serve their students and allowsOSSE to make better informed decisions with regards to College Access Challenge Grant(CACG) funding, which will be directed towards programs that aim to close gaps andexpand services to students. Through this, we hope to increase the proportion ofstudents who have access to, enroll and persist in, and complete college.
