Agenda Reminder on New Race Ethnicity values Version 3.6 Enhancements Required vs Recommended Questions?
All state and local education agencies are required to use the new federal ethnicity and race categories for federal reporting no later than the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year. Therefore, beginning with the 2010-2011 school year, student records and transcripts must include the new ethnicity and race data elements for all students enrolled since the beginning of the 2009-2010 school year. For students who have not been enrolled in the district since the 2008-2009 school year, the old ethnic data element may be reported instead. The old ethnicity value is described as Ethnicity Code with an XML name Race on page 2.30 of the TREx Data Standards. TREx 3.6 Enhancements –Reminder about new Ethnicity Values
The new federal Ethnicity/Race codes are listed as separate data elements, since multiple selections may be reported for a student.

Required vs Recommended There has been some confusion regarding the requirement terms previously used in relation to the Data Element lists in Appendix A. In particular, the term Required was intended to mean required by the Schema, e.g. one of the twelve mandated data elements that if not present would cause the file not to load. This often caused confusion for elements that were required by law –when applicable or were pertinent to only one record type, e.g. required for the transcript, but not the student record. Not all data elements are relevant for every student or record type. For instance, the Special Education Indicator is not applicable to every student, however, if it is, it is Required for that student. Or a particular element may be required (when applicable) to be printed on the Student Transcript, but is not required on the Student Record – Graduation Date or Graduation Program Type for instance. In an attempt to clarify the definitions, Required, Recommended, and If Applicable have been changed.
Required vs Recommended The following section is a list of the TREx data elements arranged by the record type (as they would appear in a record; not within a complex type). The table indicates a data element as required in the following manner: Mandatory: Required within the file extract by the TREx schema, otherwise, the file will not load. Required by TEC: Required by state law and/or Texas Education Code. These data elements may be required for the Transcript for instance, but not for the Student Record, therefore the Schema cannot enforce their inclusion. Required by TEC if applicable: Required by state law and/or Texas Education Code if the data element pertains to the particular student. Because some data elements may not apply to every student, Homeless Indicator for instance, the Schema cannot enforce their inclusion. Recommended if available: Recommended by TEA, institutions of higher education, and user focus groups. If the data is available to the sending school district, it should be included in the extract file.
Required vs Recommended Note to Student Information Systems Vendors: All Data extract programs must be able to populate all TREx data elements defined in the XML Schema, whether they are designated Mandatory, Required by TEC, Required by TEC, if applicable, or Recommended if available. Note to Campus/District users: If a data element is shown as not required for the file extract but data are available and relevant to the accuracy and completeness of the student record or transcript, it is the responsibility of the campus/district to include these data.
