FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky has been awarded more than $6.7 million in a four-year federal grant to expand access to education and workforce data.

Gov. Steve Beshear’s office said in a news release that the state is one of 16 states or territories to receive a grant in the sixth round of the Statewide Longitudinal Data System Grant program.

The grant is from the U.S. Education Department and will be administered through the Kentucky Center for Education and Workforce Statistics, under the Education and Workforce Development Cabinet.

The release said the state will use the funds to improve access to its statewide repository of education data from early childhood through postsecondary and into training and employment.

The project will use the system to assess students’ college and career readiness and track outcomes.
