Silicon Valley Regional Data Trust (SVRDT)

The Silicon Valley Regional Data Trust (SVRDT) brings together data from numerous public agencies that service children and families, including Education (public school districts), Public Health, Child and Family Services, Mental Health, Juvenile Justice/Probation, and Education Technology companies.

The current siloed state of education, social services, and other data systems involving children, coupled with unresolved privacy and trust issues, results in both incomplete and fragmentary analysis of complex problems and disjointed service delivery facing all children, but especially for children of poverty.

By applying advanced data analytics, SVRDT will create a personal blueprint for students that clarifies the myriad factors influencing their lives and from that to improve the effectiveness of services and academic outcomes.

As a research center of the University of California, Santa Cruz, SVRDT has also gained support from the National Science Foundation.
