There is a growing interest in interagency data sharing to benefit children in foster care, yet a great deal of work remains to make this vision a reality. In recent years, Louisiana and Maryland have seen real movement in launching a serious effort to share education data for children in foster care. In this webinar, Karen Faulk (LA) and David Ayer (MD) discuss their States' efforts and successes related to information sharing. During the Q&A session, we encourage attendees to share their experiences and suggest ideas and next steps for moving forward.
