The Department's Institute of Education Sciences (IES) recently announced 24 new state-level grants to support the design and implementation of statewide longitudinal data systems.
The coordinator of the Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems Grant Program--which is run by the Department of Education and helps states establish the databases--told investigators the department does not require states to collect SSNs for the databases, The Times reported.
Among them: developing easy-to-use templates that schools can use to meet the HEOA's disclosure requirements; making improved data collection and reporting a focus in its postsecondary education initiatives and grant programs; continuing to provide incentive funding to strengthen states' data infrastructure through Statewide Longitudinal Data System (SLDS) grants, which will make its fifth round of awards this spring; and convening a summit, this year, to highlight promising practices in the collection of data related to student success, such as student learning and employment.
Also, the Department's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) has invited states to apply for grants to assist them in developing and implementing statewide longitudinal data systems.
