If so, please elaborate and provide more information. When data is disaggregated, what are the specific categories used? Are these categories based primarily on the categories used by the U.S. Census, e.g. Asian Indian, Cambodian, Hmong, Laotian, etc.? What type of information is most helpful in addressing the educational needs of students, e.g. ethnicity, language, gender? If your SEA, LEA, school or IHE does not have such a policy, do you have plans for future implementation of such a policy? If so, what are the plans?

9 White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders #aapiwh Website: Context for Responses Data Collection/Data Systems Please describe how the data is collected. For example, is the data collected through an annual questionnaire or survey given to students or parents? What data systems are used to maintain and sort the disaggregated data, e.g. statewide longitudinal data system, etc.? How long has the data collection system been in use? What, if anything, had to be changed about your data system in order to collect disaggregated data regarding AAPI student subgroups? Please recommend/suggest methods of revising data collection systems to accommodate data disaggregation.

10 White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders #aapiwh Website: Effective Use of Disaggregated Data Context for Responses How has this practice of collecting and disaggregating data enhanced the ability to identify and address educational needs of AAPI student subgroups? Has utilization of disaggregated data assisted in cost saving measures? Have specific programs been created or implemented in response to the disaggregated data? Please describe these programs. How have these programs targeted specific communities? What are some of the results or effects of these programs on these communities?

11 White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders #aapiwh Website: Context for Responses Challenges/Barriers What challenges exist that make adoption of these practices or policies difficult? Are there common capacity challenges such as training or technology inaccessibility that SEAs, LEAs, schools and IHEs might face when disaggregating data on AAPI student subgroups? What might be the most cost-efficient manner to collect disaggregated data? How much of your school, SEA, LEA or IHEs budget is allocated to help data collection and disaggregation? How can other schools, SEAs, LEAs and IHEs maintain systems to collect disaggregated data on a limited budget? Did your SEA, LEA, school or IHE encounter privacy issues when collecting disaggregated data? What was/will be done to overcome these privacy issues? How did your SEA, LEA, school or IHE encourage students and parents to provide data?
