The Institute of Education Sciences (Institute) invites State educational agencies to apply for grants to assist them in using data in statewide, longitudinal data systems (SLDS) to inform their efforts to improve education in critical areas. Applicants may apply for funds to carry out projects to address up to two of the following data use priorities: 1) Financial Equity and Return on Investment (ROI); 2) Educator Talent Management; 3) Early Learning; 4) College and Career; 5) Evaluation and Research; 6) Instructional Support. 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. All States and territories are eligible to apply for this grant.
