U.S. Department of Education has finalized changes to the collection
and reporting of race and ethnicity. Starting with the 2010-2011 school
year, the new standards will require all students to be identified using
a new two-part race/ethnicity question. The federal government has
established the two-part question to recognize Hispanic ethnicity and
race as two separate and distinct concepts. Additionally, the change
allows the reporting of multiple races (American Indian or Alaska
Native, Asian, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian or Other
Pacific Islander, and White).
The OPI has developed the following guidance and resource materials for district use as they transition to the new standards.
