Race and Ethnicity Data Collection Guidelines

Under the Individuals with Disability Education Act (IDEA), states are required to collect race and ethnicity data on students with disabilities. Data collected through the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education that account for progress in meeting the goals of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) include information about students' race and ethnicity. These are examples of data collections tied to federal funding that must comply with the new federal guidance for collecting race and ethnicity data.
