Personnel Exchange Network

The Personnel Exchange Network (PEN) provides grantee states and non-grantee states the opportunity to meet with another state's agency staff to gain a better understanding of successful methods of education data collection, maintenance, reporting, and use. Host states have the opportunity to share their progress and lessons learned. Personnel Exchanges can last up to three days and include state teams of up to two people. For more information regarding the Personnel Exchange Network and how to apply, please review the PEN Instructions and Tip Sheet MS Word (383 KB) and contact your state’s State Support Team member.
