Legislative Background
goals of the program
The purpose of this program is to provide grants to SEAs to enable such agencies to design, develop, and implement statewide longitudinal data systems to efficiently and accurately manage, analyze, disaggregate, report, and use individual student data.

The long term goals of this program are to:

identify successful instructional programs, facilitate use of research to improve instruction

determine whether graduates have knowledge and skills to succeed in postsecondary education and the workforce

simplify the processes used by state education agencies to make educational data transparent through local, state, and federal reporting

support informed decision-making at all levels of the education system

permit the generation and use of accurate and timely data.
