Community School Individual & Family Connecting People and Place in Pinellas County: Improving Communities through Multi-agency Integrated Data Systems (IDS) The Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County, FL is exploring the relative contributions of putative causal factors related to absenteeism using variables contained in two Integrated Data Systems (IDS). JWB is using a nested model to explore the influence of school and community contexts on variables shown to be related to absenteeism. With the help of Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University, Child Opportunity Index scores were computed that are Pinellas County centric. Knowledge gained from this research will be used in policy recommendations for JWB and its community partners.
