Report examines high school outcomes for youth served by Department of Social and Health Services

A new report examining high school outcomes for youth served by the state Department of Social and Health Services is now available online.

The Research and Data Analysis Division of DSHS is collaborating with the Education Research and Data Center in the Office of Financial Management to combine DSHS client service records with selected education records, including preschool, K-12 and higher education.

This is the first of five reports that DSHS will produce from this groundbreaking initiative. The work is funded by an American Reinvestment and Recovery Act grant received by the ERDC.

The report is available at: http://publications.rda.dshs.wa.gov/1471/.
