Race and Ethnicity Task Force

Race and Ethnicity Student Data Task Force - In the 2016 Fourth Substitute House Bill 1541 Sec 502 charged OSPI to convene a task force to review the United States department of education 2007 race and ethnicity reporting guidelines and develop race and ethnicity guidance for the state. The guidance must clarify for students and families why information about race and ethnicity is collected and how students and families can help school administrators properly identify them. The guidance must also describe the best practices for school administrators to use when identifying the race and ethnicity of students and families. The task force must use the United States census and the American communities survey in the development of the guidance.
