This project will report rates of homelessness by grade and school level and help support the CCS response. Individual level education data can help inform disparities between students who experience displacement, homelessness and more stably-housed peers on important indicators of school functioning like attendance, grades, test scores, and graduation rate. With the help of this data we can understand the degree to which displacement and homelessness contribute to other district priorities like truancy, drop outs, and trauma informed care. CURE affiliated scholars are working with CCS and CCHP to form an ongoing governance structure and sharing agreement for de-identified data from the ARISE integrated data system.
- Understand the prevalence of displacement and homelessness among students in Camden City Schools (CCS) using routinely collected administrative records
- Generate actionable intelligence to help meet the needs of students from a resilienceperspective.
- Establish data sharing agreements and memoranda of understanding between Camden City Schools, The ARISE Project of the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers (CCHP), and Rutgers University-Camden
