Texas Education Agency

Texas Public School Student Ethnicity and Race Data Questionnaire


The United States Department of Education (USDE) requires all state and local education institutions to collect data on ethnicity and race for students and staff. This information is used for state and federal accountability reporting as well as for reporting to the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

School district staff and parents or guardians of students enrolling in school are requested to provide this information. If you decline to provide this information, please be aware that the USDE requires school districts to use observer identification as a last resort for collecting the data for federal reporting.

Please answer both parts of the following questions on the student's ethnicity and race.  United States Federal Register (71 FR 44866)






Part 1. Ethnicity


Part 2. Race

What is the person’s race? (Answer yes or no to each and choose one or more.)
