Increasing Student Equity through the Integration of Health Data
Presented by Erika Mathur & Sunny Ochoa
Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) and Healthier Kids Foundation have been collaborating on integrating student health data into the SCCOE’s integrated data system, the DataZone. Student-level health data is collected in the areas of vision, hearing and dental screenings. These health screenings identify students who need further assessments and allow Healthier Kids and the schools to assist parents in obtaining care for their children. Overlaying health data with attendance and academic achievement data enables school staff to identify students and their families in need of additional supports with follow up. Students who can’t see or hear adequately, or who are chronically absent with acute or chronic dental issues don’t have equal opportunities to access school curriculum. This session will demonstrate how health data is currently integrated into DataZone, and how this data can inform practice to provide students with the equitable learning opportunities they all deserve.
