The State Support Team (SST) is a group of data systems experts whose primary objective is the direct support of states around developing, managing, using, and sustaining statewide longitudinal data systems (SLDSs). Common areas of SST assistance include, but are not limited to, data governance, stakeholder engagement, project management, sustainability, and data use. The SST also provides support related to early childhood initiatives, K12 systems, postsecondary systems, workforce data, and other areas critical to SLDS efforts. All states and territories, regardless of whether they have received an SLDS grant, can request support for SLDS projects from the SST by sending a support request or by contacting their SST Point of Contact (PoC). See the SST Points of Contact document below to find your PoC.
