1 Background on New Requirements and Implications for CEDARS 1 Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

2 Allow individuals to more accurately identify themselves; Are required for federal education funding and accountability reporting; Align with other agencies that are using the new standards, Are consistent with census data and other national data sets used for policy analyses; and Better reflect population changes. 2 Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

3 Implementation of new categories for ethnicity and race is the school year. CEDARS data for September 2010 must include data in File L (Ethnicity) and File M (Race) Districts can start earlier 3Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

4 We currently collect and report ethnicity using: Asian, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, Black or African American, Hispanic, Caucasian, American Indian or Alaskan Native, Multiracial and Unknown Federal requirements now require a separation of ethnicity (Hispanic/Non-Hispanic) and race. Data collection will now require a two-part question: 1. Is your child Hispanic/Latino or Not Hispanic/Latino? 2. What is your childs race? 4Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

5 Everyone must have a response to both questions. Each of us is either Hispanic/Latino or not, and (regardless of whether we are Hispanic/Latino or not) we are of at least one race. Hispanic/Latino is not considered a race. People whose ethnicity is Hispanic/Latino are also of one or more race. The new Federal requirements also say Unknown, Multiracial, and Not Provided will not be valid responses to ethnicity or race identification questions. If parents, guardians, or students do not provide ethnicity and race information, districts are responsible for assigning categories based on observation. 5Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

6 Minimum federal requirements for collecting ethnicity: Hispanic/Latino Not Hispanic/Latino State requirements for ethnicity follow federal guidelines, but instead of just Hispanic/Latino, parents, guardians, and students can select one or more of these categories: Cuban, Dominican, Spaniard, Puerto Rican, Mexican/ Mexican American/Chicano, Central American, South American, Latin American, and Other Hispanic/Latino. Not Hispanic/Latino is the other selection 6Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

7 Question 1. Is your child of Hispanic or Latino origin? (Check all that apply.) 7 NOT HISPANIC/LATINO MEXICAN/MEXICAN AMERICAN/CHICANO CUBAN CENTRAL AMERICAN DOMINICAN SOUTH AMERICAN SPANIARD LATIN AMERICAN PUERTO RICAN OTHER HISPANIC/LATINO Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

8 Federal standards for collecting race data include the selection of one or more of these categories: a.American Indian or Alaska Native b.Asian c.African American or Black d.Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander e.White OSPI has adopted standards that allow one or more selections from 57 categories. The new OSPI categories for ethnicity and race are consistent with data collected by the US Census. 8Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

9 Question 2. What race do you consider your child? (Check all that apply.) 9 AFRICAN AMERICAN OR BLACK WHITE Any of 15 ASIAN GROUPS Any of 9 PACIFIC ISLANDER GROUPS Any of 31 AMERICAN INDIAN GROUPS Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

10 These racial groups were selected because: They reflect the major population groups in Washington state. The American Indian groups include all recognized Washington state tribal groups. 10Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

12 To prepare for new ethnicity and race categories districts will need to: Prepare district data systems to align with these new categories. Write to parents or guardians explaining the change in ethnic and race categories, as well as the re-inventorying process. Re-inventory students ethnicity and race classifications. Conduct staff training, especially for front line staff who collect, manage and report data. 12Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

13 New ethnicity and race categories are required for the school year. Districts can begin submitting data in new format, via CEDARS at any time before September Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

14 For the school year districts have two choices for submitting ethnicity (and potentially race) data in CEDARS If ready to submit the new 2-Part data, use File L for Ethnicity, and File M for Race If NOT yet ready to submit the new 2-Part data, continue to submit the CSRS Ethnicity as element 11 in File B. Districts can switch to using Files L and M at any time during the school year. If data are submitted in both Files L and M AND CSRS Ethnicity in Element B11, OSPI will use Files L and M for our analysis and federal reporting. 14Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

15 Example 1: A student is currently classified as Hispanic. After re-inventory, this particular student is classified as Cuban for Ethnicity and White for Race. Example 2: A student is currently classified as Asian. After re-inventory, this particular student is classified as Non-Hispanic for Ethnicity and Chinese for Race. Example 3: A student is currently classified as Black. After re-inventory, this student is classified as Non-Hispanic for Ethnicity and both Black and White for Race. Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction15

16 Regardless of the combination of ethnicity and race categories for any student, each student will be counted in only one of these seven categories when reporting to US Department of Education (USED) or other federal agencies: Hispanic/Latino of any race Black or African American White Asian (any of the Asian groups) Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander (any of the NH/PI groups) American Indian or Alaska Native (any of the AI/AN groups) Two or more races 16Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

17 Example 1: A student who is Hispanic or Latino and Black or African American is reported only in the Hispanic/Latino aggregate category. Example 2: A student who is Non-Hispanic or Latino and Black or African American is reported only in the Black/African American aggregate category. Example 3: A student who is Non-Hispanic or Latino and Puyallup and Nisqually is reported only in the Native American aggregate category. Example 4: A student who is Non-Hispanic or Latino and Puyallup and White is reported only in the Two or More Races aggregate category. Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction17
