TSDL: Teacher Student Data Link Project
Funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and conducted by the Center for Educational
Leadership and Technology (CELT) with guidance and dissemination support from the Data Quality Campaign (DQC)

Unique Student Identifier

When students enroll in the school or school district, their demographic data is collected and entered into a student information system, and the required documentation is checked to make sure it has been submitted appropriately. Previous school records are acquired, and the accuracy of any data entry is validated. Other activities define the procedure and ability to assign, manage, and maintain a unique student identifier at the state and/or local education agency level.
