Tennessee leverages a longitudinal data system, P20 Connect TN, to link education, labor and workforce, human services, children’s services, and economic data at the individual level to produce insights for programmatic investments. For example, connected K-12, postsecondary, and labor data have enabled the study of the outcomes of the Tennessee Promise program that has informed program implementation both in Tennessee and in other states.
