The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) invites State education agencies (SEAs) to apply for first year 2019 grants to assist them in using Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS) to inform their efforts to improve education in critical areas. Information about this grant competition is available on the Federal Register. The SLDS Request for Applications (RFA) are available on this page. The full application package will be published no later than June 25, 2019. The SLDS team will hold webinars in July and August to answer questions about the grant competition, and also will post a frequently asked questions list on the SLDS website to provide information in response to questions that are asked about the grant round.
