P-20 State Longitudinal Data Systems
A P-20 State Longitudinal Data System (SLDS) is a comprehensive
education data warehouse and decision support system. In a typical
P-20 SLDS system wide variety of data is gathered from P-12 (pre-K
to 12th grade), Post Secondary and Workforce to track Students education
path and analyze their employment outcomes.
P-20 SLDS allows State Policymakers, K-12, Higher Education and Workforce participants to integrate and expand student longitudinal data systems to generate and analyze data seamlessly, that before would cross multiple agencies. Well architected P-20 SLDS systems can answer several Policy Questions, such as,
"How much do our college graduates
earn and how long does it take for them to find full-time work?
What is their debt burden while in college and upon graduation?"
And are built using open architecture and sustainable processes
that will provide the flexibility for the State Agencies to not
only manage the systems for the long run, but, also increase usage
of the system across the multiple agencies and at the Local Education
Agency (School Districts) level.
