Our IDC team brings with it a lifetime of experiences, insight, and a collective wisdom that informs our work and shapes who we are. Check this space for an insider's glimpse at what makes us tick.
Rachel Wilkinson is an IDC State Liaison who provides technical assistance and support around IDEA Part B data, co-leads data-quality peer groups, and assists with the development of tools and resources based on needs from the field. She took time out of her busy schedule to sit down with us.
Chris Thacker is a State Liaison with IDC who provides technical assistance to states both on-site and virtually in addition to developing tools and products that help states with the submission of their Section 618 data and the SPP/APR. In his pre-IDC life, Chris also worked in both underground and surface coal mines and has been a revenue officer for the IRS. Intrigued, we sat down with Chris to learn more.
TA Specialist and IDC’s Project Manager Lee Anne Sulzberger knows that positive relationship building is critical when it comes to helping state and local agencies build their capacity for high-quality special education data. She recently sat down with us to help build that connection by answering some thoughtful—and fun—questions about her life in and out of IDC.
