This roundtable will discuss perspectives from housing, health, and policy for what we have seen and what may be to come, as well as ideas we may enact to create more permanent solutions, in addition to addressing current crises.

Island School is one of 247 “community schools” in New York. These are regular public schools, with a twist. They have longer days and longer school years: Island stays open 12 hours a day, six days a week, including spring and winter breaks as well as the summer. A psychologist makes weekly rounds. A dentist comes by regularly. So does an optometrist, and students who need glasses get them free.

Increasingly, a wide range of entities—housers, educators, cities—are using data sharing as a way to increase effectiveness across systems. Data sharing exemplifies this community of practice’s intent to align systems to improve life outcomes for low-income children. We have many robust examples on the local level and this panel will discuss what data systems beyond local partners can look like and accomplish.

Yet, many systems still do not want to engage in dating sharing or have encountered resistance. This roundtable not only discusses how partners made data sharing possible, but also looks to the future: how the process has gone since initial implementation, what partners have learned from their data sharing efforts, and next steps for the work.
