MARYLAND LONGITUDINAL DATA SYSTEM CENTER

ORIGIN & FUNCTIONS


In July 2010, the Maryland Longitudinal Data System Center Governing Board was established (Chapter 190, Acts of 2010).

The Board oversees creation both of the Maryland Longitudinal Data System and its Center.

The Maryland Longitudinal Data System contains education and workforce data on each individual student in the State. To determine how students are performing and to what extent they are prepared for higher education and the workforce, the System manages and analyzes this data. The System is to be established jointly by the State Department of Education, the Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation, the Maryland Higher Education Commission, the University System of Maryland, Morgan State University, and St. Mary's College of Maryland.

The Maryland Longitudinal Data System Center oversees operation of the Maryland Longitudinal Data System to maintain the data warehouse, ensure the security and privacy of student and workforce data, conduct research, and fulfill information and data requests.

The Governing Board appoints the Center's Executive Director, and approves its annual budget. Further, the Board determines the organizational placement and location of the Center, and develops an implementation plan for the System and the Center. Providing general oversight and direction to the Center, the Board also establishes its policy and research agenda, and oversees compliance with the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act and other relevant privacy laws.

Twelve members constitute the Governing Board. Five are appointed to three-year terms by the Governor, and seven serve ex officio (Chapter 679, Acts of 2013; Code Education Article, secs. 24-701 through 24-707).
