Race / Ethnicity Regulation Changes

Each year, every school district in Kansas is required to report student data by race and ethnicity categories set by the federal government to the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE). Though the KSDE does not report individual student data to the federal government, the total number of students in various categories of each school is reported. These reports help keep track of changes in student enrollments and ensure that all students receive the educational programs and services to which they are entitled.
