When entering a new student who is only Hispanic/Latino, it will not let me save him. It is requiring me to select one of the 5 race choices. The student doesn't fit in those 5 categories????
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.
