14 States Win Grants to Link K12 With Postsecondary and/or Workforce Data

The Institute for Education Sciences just announced the winners of the latest winners of State Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS) grants. The grants were awarded in three categories:

  1. The design, development, and implementation of a statewide, longitudinal kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12) data system.
  2. The development and linking of early childhood data with the State’s K-12 data system.
  3. The development and linking of postsecondary and/or workforce data with the State’s K-12 data system.

The third category is of the most interest to CTE stakeholders, as this linkage is critical for reporting on the future success of students in CTE programs. Fourteen entities were awarded grants in this category, including:

  • Alaska - $4.0 million
  • District of Columbia - $4.0 million
  • Hawaii - $3.4 million
  • Idaho - $3.1 million
  • Indiana - $4.0 million
  • Iowa - $3.7 million
  • Kentucky - $3.6 million
  • Maryland - $4.0 million
  • Montana - $4.0 million
  • Nevada - $4.0 million
  • New Jersey - $4.0 million
  • North Carolina - $3.6 million
  • North Dakota - $3.9 million
  • Rhode Island - $4.0 million

States will use the funds to implement three-year projects as described in their project abstracts and applications, which can be found on the IES website.
