The first call in the series on innovative uses of funds featured guest speaker, Elizabeth Drake, Senior Research Associate with the Washington State Institute for Public Policy (WSIPP). Since the 1990s, the Washington State legislature has directed WSIPP to identify “evidence-based” policies. The goal is to provide Washington policymakers and budget writers with a list of well-researched public policies that can, with a high degree of certainty, lead to better statewide outcomes coupled with a more efficient use of taxpayer dollars. Our guest speaker discussed WSIPP’s efforts in the area of juvenile justice to identify and promote cost-effective interventions that have had a positive impact on recidivism. NDTAC State Liaison, Lauren Amos, rounded out the call by discussing how cost-benefit analysis can inform SEA and subgrantee decisionmaking about academic programming.
