Inviting input from the broader community can be challenging when state longitudinal data systems have been built to serve the state agencies providing the data and a limited set of other stakeholders, such as policy makers and researchers. However, by including input from educators, social service providers, researchers, advocates, students, and parents early on, states can design tools that are more useful to a broader range of constituencies, and in the process gain insights that can help to develop stronger improvements to policy and practice. This resource includes process considerations, tips for sustained success, and additional resources for reference.
