Welcome to North Dakota's Statewide Longitudinal Data System (ND SLDS) website.

ND SLDS is a cooperative project among the following North Dakota entities and agencies:

  • Information Technology Department
  • Department of Public Instruction
  • North Dakota University System
  • Department of Commerce
  • Department of Career and Technical Education
  • Job Service ND
  • Education Technology Council
  • Department of Health
  • Department of Human Services

The purpose of this project is to design, develop, and implement a P-20 longitudinal data system. The data and analysis made accessible through this system will help educators and policymakers answer a range of program and policy questions to gauge the effectiveness of programs and design targeted improvement strategies. 

ND SLDS will collect data from multiple entities, via multiple data sources/data warehouses. There are currently other projects in progress to build these data sources, e.g., the K-12 domain of the SLDS. No personally-identifiable data will be public, in compliance with all state and federal laws.

Information about the K-12 domain of the SLDS can be viewed here.
