Virginia Wins Student Data Tracking Funds

May 22, 2010

Virginia will receive $17.5 million in federal funds to improve the system it uses to track student data.

The U.S. Department of Education announced the grant Friday. Virginia was one of 20 states sharing $250 million in grants, which are funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. All 50 states applied.

The DOE says the improved systems should allow students to be tracked through their entire academic career and will allow states to match teachers to students while maintaining confidentiality.
