What is P20 WIN?

Read time: 6 minutes

P20 WIN is Connecticut’s state longitudinal data system and is the mechanism by which data from multiple agencies are matched to address critical policy questions. The vision for P20 WIN is to inform sound policies and practice, through the secure sharing of critical longitudinal data across the participating agencies to ensure that individuals successfully navigate supportive services and educational pathways into the workforce.

P20 WIN has a membership of 13 state agencies, institutions of higher education, and nonprofits, including: the Office of Early Childhood (OEC), the State Department of Education (SDE), the University of Connecticut (UCONN), the Department of Labor (DOL), the CT Conference of Independent Colleges (CCIC), Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU), the Department of Social Services (DSS), the Department of Children and Families (DCF), the Office of Higher Education (OHE), and the CT Coalition to End Homeless (CCEH), the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS), the CT Technical Education and Career System (CTECS), and the Judicial Branch Court Support Services (JBCSSD). 

Data are never evaluated to look at or identify individuals; rather, aggregated data are studied to identify areas where education, workforce training and supportive services may be improved in a way that better supports individuals as they engage with various state services.
