Federal grant should help Georgia schools and student data

  • Follow Latest News

Georgia was awarded an $8.9 million grant by the federal government to improve its statewide educational data system, the State Department of Education announced this morning.

Georgia was one of 27 states that received a 2009 Statewide Longitudinal Data System Grant from the Institute of Educational Sciences, a division of the U.S. Department of Education, it said in a news release.

The Statewide Longitudinal Data System Grants were created to enhance the ability of states to efficiently and accurately manage, analyze, and use education data, including individual student records.
