Longitudinal Data
Tracking System

In 2010, the Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) secured a $7.6
million grant from the USDOE to

support the development and
implementation of a statewide longitudinal data system (SLDS) to
enable the examination of student progress from early childhood
into career. During the past year, MDE and its partners (including

and the Governor’s Office) have
been working on the development of the System.

Mississippi’s grant
runs through 2013.

Key steps completed to date include:

Infrastructure and programming enhancements to accommodate
data collection, transfer, and analysis;

Refinement of data file structures and field definitions to ensure
alignment between state and federal reporting entities; and

Passage of SB 2371, which put the SLDS in state statute.

Longitudinal Data
Tracking System

Next steps will be:

Development of rules and regulations governing the activities of the
SLDS in accordance with state and federal law;

Review and modification (if necessary) of Memorandums of
Understanding developed between and among system partners;.

Identification of critical research and policy questions the system will
need to address;

Identification of reports and other information that should be
available to education and workforce entities, as well as public

Training of key stakeholders in the use of the system; and

Development of a sustainable funding mechanism for the system.

that specified in HEOA, which specifically distinguishes
distance education from correspondence education.

classes, videotapes, correspondence courses, or other means.

Proposed IPEDS definition: Education that uses one or more
technologies to deliver instruction to students who are
separated from the instructor and to support regular and
substantive interaction between the students and the
instructor synchronously or asynchronously.

Internet; one
way and two
way transmissions through open broadcasts,
closed circuit, cable, microwave, broadband lines, fiber optics, satellite or
wireless communication devices; audio conferencing; and video cassette,
DVDs, and CD
ROMs, if the cassette, DVDs, and CD
