MN P-20 Education Partnership

The Minnesota P-20 Education Partnership is an organization made up of the statewide education groups in Minnesota, plus others from government, business, and other private sectors. The Minnesota P-20 Education Partnership works collaboratively to maximize achievements of all students, from preschool through elementary, secondary, and postsecondary education, while promoting the efficient use of financial and human resources. It provides a forum where critical policy issues can be collectively identified and addressed, and where data-driven decision-making structures can be developed and implemented statewide.

RELATED DOCUMENTS

Minnesota's Statewide Longitudinal Education Data System (SLEDS)

Minnesota developed the Minnesota Statewide Education Data System (SLEDS) which matches student data from pre-kindergarten through completion of college and into the workforce. The system enables users to answer a range of program and delivery questions that can help them gauge the effectiveness of current programs and design targeted improvement strategies to help students. The Minnesota P-20 Education Partnership governs the SLEDS system. The project is managed jointly by the Minnesota Office of Higher Education (OHE), the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE), and the Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED).

What is SLEDS?

Using the four P's—Pathways, Progress, Predictors, and Performance, stakeholders will have a framework to assess and evaluate data across systems to answer critical and long-ranging questions and build a comprehensive body of information to inform future decision-making.

Pathways: The movement of individual students between K-12/Higher Education/Workforce

Progress: The benchmarks or transition points students meet—or fail to meet.

Predictors: The characteristics, patterns, or commonalities that help explain which students succeed and which do not.

Performance: How well are education and workforce aligned for individual success?
