Cradle-to-Career Data System Earns High Praise and Achieves Early Milestones

The Cradle-to-Career information system will link data from across the early childhood, K–12, postsecondary and workforce sectors when it’s fully running in next few years. It will link together existing data on education, workforce, financial aid, and social services to create tools for use by students, families, policy makers, researchers, and the public.
“Thanks to the unprecedented collaboration and leadership of more than a dozen California agencies, departments, and organizations, we are now poised to build out a landmark data system,” said Governor Gavin Newsom. “Bringing this information together will enable a greater understanding of barriers students face and empower Californians to build more equitable futures.”
