Main topic: We'll continue our exploration of the six domains with an overview about the key drivers within Education that need to be considered as part of linking and interacting with other domains.

We'll begin our orientation and exploration of the education domain with an overview and discussion about PK-20 education and its current status in interoperability within and outside the education domain. We will also cover a high-level view of PK-12 tech architecture in order to provide our domain partners with a view of how our systems function at a federal and local level and share both the challenges and opportunities to coordinate care, services, and education initiatives by including schools. We want to have an in-depth discussion and Q&A of the education domain, the data exchange intersections that would benefit individuals, families and organizations and the implications for connections with other domains.

Our moderator: Sandra Elliott is the Chief Academic Officer for the EP3 Foundation, a 501c3 focused on data privacy, protection and personalization. She will be joined by Marsali Hancock, CEO of EP3 Foundation and Larry Smith, CPO of GG4L.

Other Agenda Topics 

  • Discuss opportunities and ideas for forming a 2nd LGT Project Team.
  • Review/discuss topics and generate a preliminary schedule for the next two months of LGT's meetings.

More Information About the Education Domain Presentation

Communities thrive when families are supported with services to help students stay in school; parents find and keep their jobs, access healthcare, and emotionally connect with friends and family. We also know that students learn best when their social determinants are supported. Support services come from a variety of health and human service providers, schools, community organizations, workforce services, and others. Each has its own digital communication system, implements different data standards and structures, and has required to meet various compliance obligations.

It turns out that identifying and then agreeing on people's identity is one of the biggest obstacles to providing coordinated, comprehensive wrap-around services.

Without resolving identity and consent ambiguity, it is impossible to electronically, in real-time, coordinate, communicate, and manage education, workforce services, and health and human services care across the public institutions providing services. Even when they are received from their local city or county.

Join us to learn about education interoperability initiatives, issues and how schools can help resolve some of the most challenging identity and consent challenges, including identifying someone under the age of 18 and the identity of the custodial parent.
