The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) invites State education agencies (SEAs) to apply for FY 2024 grants to assist them in using Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS) to inform their efforts to improve education in critical areas.
Applicants may apply for funds to carry out projects in one of the following data use priorities:
Under any of these priorities, States should consider how their proposals would enhance their ability to use their SLDS to address the needs of at-risk students, including children and youth who are or have been homeless or in the child welfare or juvenile justice systems. Applicants may also indicate an interest in assisting the Department by participating in the development of open-source data use assets built upon the Common Education Data Standards (CEDS) and within the Open Source Community (OSC). States do not have to include information about how they would do this work in the application, but merely may indicate that they are interested in this work.
