The broad goal of New Mexico’s P20W* Statewide Longitudinal Data System (P20W SLDS) is to provide educators and policymakers with more comprehensive data and analysis from which to make informed decisions. This will enable educators and policymakers to answer a range of program and policy questions to gauge the effectiveness of programs and design targeted improvement.
The P20W SLDS, currently in initial development, is intended to provide data to facilitate successful outcomes in education, support transition into the work force for New Mexicans, and help guide the process of aligning education with the New Mexican economy.
*P=preschool through 20 = postsecondary education and W = workforce
