Letter in Support of AB 99 – Cradle-to-Career Data System

Over the last year, more than 170 stakeholders from 15 state agencies, numerous educational institutions, research and policy organizations, and community groups came together to develop a blueprint for the California Cradle-to-Career Data System. The proposed data system will be a neutral source of high-quality information, paired with tools to help a range of stakeholders to utilize the information. The data system will not only assist in identifying student needs and inequitable disparities, it will contribute immensely to our state’s economic recovery in the years to come. TICAS strongly supports the creation of the data system, and believes it presents an important opportunity for California.
