Purpose of Program:
The Statewide, Longitudinal Data Systems program awards grants to State educational agencies (SEAs) to design, develop, and implement statewide, longitudinal data systems to efficiently and accurately manage, analyze, disaggregate, and use individual student data.
The Department's long-term goal in operating the program is to help all States create comprehensive P-20W (early learning through workforce) systems that foster the generation and use of accurate and timely data, support analysis and informed decision-making at all levels of the education system, increase the efficiency with which data may be analyzed to support the continuous improvement of education services and outcomes, facilitate research to improve student academic achievement and close achievement gaps, support education accountability systems, and simplify the processes used by SEAs to make education data transparent through Federal and public reporting.

On September 20, 2011, we published in the Federal Register (76 FR 58252) a notice inviting applications for the Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems FY 2012 competition.
That notice established a December 15, 2012, deadline date for eligible applicants to apply for funding under this program.
As a result of the notice published on September 20, 2011, 31 eligible entities submitted applications.
In order to ensure fairness and afford as many eligible applicants as possible an opportunity to be considered for funding under this program, we are reopening the Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems FY 2012 competition to eligible applicants that were not able to submit applications by the original deadline date.
Thus, we will consider as received timely, all of the applications we received through Grants.gov by December 15, 2011 (referred to as ``previously submitted applications'' in this notice), and will consider as timely any additional applications or revisions to any previously submitted application submitted by the new deadline date established in this notice.
All information in the September 20, 2011 notice remains the same for new applications and revisions to previously submitted applications submitted in response to this reopening notice, except for the following updates to the Dates section and section V.
