16 Background on New Requirements and Implications for CEDARS

17 17 Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

18 18 Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

19 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. 19 Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

20 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) You can start earlier – more about that later…. An OSPI Bulletin is being developed/approved – watch for it in June. 20 Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

21 We currently collect and report ethnicity using: Asian, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, Black or African American, Caucasian, Native American or Alaskan Native, Multiracial and Unknown Federal requirements now require a separation of ethnicity and race. Data collection therefore requires a two-part question: 1.Are you Hispanic/Latino or Not Hispanic/Latino? 2.What is your race? 21 Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

22 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 at least one race. Hispanic/Latino is not considered a race. People whose ethnicity is Hispanic/Latino are also one or more race. The new Federal requirements also say Unknown, Multiracial, and Not Provided are NO LONGER valid responses to ethnicity or race identification questions.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. 22 Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

23 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: Argentine, Chilean, Mexican/Mexican American/ Chicano, Peruvian, Salvadoran, Spanish, and Other Hispanic/Latino. Not Hispanic/Latino is the other selection 23 Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

24 Question 1. Is your child of Hispanic or Latino origin? (Check all that apply.) 24 NOT HISPANIC/LATINO PERUVIAN ARGENTINE SALVADORAN CHILEAN SPANISH MEXICAN /CHICANO OTHER HISPANIC/ LATINO Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

25 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 BUT Washington State has adopted standards that allow one or more selections from 56 categories. 25 Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

26 Question 2. What race do you consider your child? (Check all that apply.) 26 AFRICAN AMERICAN OR BLACK CAUCASIAN OR WHITE Any of 15 ASIAN GROUPS Any of 9 PACIFIC ISLANDER GROUPS Any of 30 AMERICAN INDIAN GROUPS Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

28 Question 2. What race do you consider your child? (Check all that apply.) 28 AFRICAN AMERICAN OR BLACK TAIWANESE WHITE OR CAUCASIAN THAI ASIAN INDIAN VIETNAMESE CHINESE OTHER ASIAN FILIPINO NATIVE HAWAIIAN HMONG FIJIAN INDONESIAN GUAMANIAN OR CHAMORRO JAPANESE MARIANA ISLANDER KOREAN MELANESIAN LAOTIAN MICRONESIAN MALAYSIAN SAMOAN PAKISTANI TONGAN SINGAPOREAN OTHER PACIFIC ISLANDER Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

29 Question 2. What race do you consider your child? (Check all that apply.) 29 CHEHALIS SAMISH COLVILLE SAUK-SUIATTLE COWLITZ SHOALWATER HOH SKOKOMISH JAMESTOWN SNOQUALMIE KALISPEL SPOKANE LOWER ELWA SQUAXIN ISLAND LUMMI STILLAGUAMISH MAKAH SUQUAMISH MUCKLESHOOT SWINOMISH NISQUALLY TULALIP NOOKSACK YAKAMA PORT GAMBLE CLALLAM OTHER WASHINGTON INDIAN PUYALLUP OTHER AMERICAN INDIAN QUINAULT ALASKA NATIVE Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

30 These racial groups were selected because: They reflect the major population groups in Washington state They are aligned with other state agencies such as the University of Washington and DSHS The Native American groups include all recognized Washington state tribal groups 30 Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

31 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. 31 Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

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

33 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. 33 Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

34 Example 1: A student is currently classified as Hispanic. After re-inventory, this particular student is classified as Argentine 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 Instruction34

35 Answer: It is important to communicate the federal and state requirement that separate ethnicity and race. Letters and forms should explain that these are two parts of one question. Follow up for racial identification may be needed. As a last resort, an observer may fill in the information for race. 35 Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

36 Answer: The school or district must accept a parent/guardian or students self-identification of ethnicity and race. Self-identification is a basic principle underlying these changes in data collection and reporting ethnicity and race. Observation is only to be used as a last resort. 36 Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

37 Regardless of the combination of ethnicity and race categories for any student, each student must be counted in only one of these seven categories when reporting to US Department of Education 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 37 Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

38 Example 1: A student who is Hispanic/Latino and Black or African American is reported only in the Hispanic/Latino aggregate category. Example 2: A student who is Non-Hispanic/Latino and Black or African American is reported only in the Black aggregate category. Example 3: A student who is Non-Hispanic/Latino and Puyallup and Nisqually is reported only in the Native American aggregate category. Example 4: A student who is Non-Hispanic/Latino and Puyallup and White is reported in the two or more races aggregate category. Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction38
