What do I enter if a student's identified race/ethnicity is not an option available in SWIS?

Last Updated: Sep 06, 2013 10:49AM PDT
The SWIS Suite uses federally defined categories for race and ethnicity reporting.

Federal guidelines require all students to report both ethnicity and race. For students who have not identified an ethnicity and/or race from the list of federally defined categories, the federal guidelines require observer identification. To identify a student as multi-racial, select all races with which a student identifies. Our recommendation is to check your district-level policies for additional guidance.

More information on the federal guidelines can be found on the U.S. Department of Education website.
