SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 7, 2006, the Secretary published a Notice of Proposed Guidance on Maintaining, Collecting, and Reporting Data on Race and Ethnicity to the U.S. Department of Education in the Federal Register (71 FR 44866). In the proposed guidance, the Secretary discussed on pages 44866 through 44868 the major elements of how the Department proposed to modify standards and aggregation categories for collecting racial and ethnic data. As explained in the proposed guidance, these changes are necessary in order to implement the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) 1997 Standards for Maintaining, Collecting, and Presenting Federal Data on Race and Ethnicity (1997 Standards).1 The 1997 Standards instituted a number of changes for how Federal agencies should collect racial and ethnic data. This guidance directly addresses three sets of issues: (1) How educational institutions and other recipients will collect and maintain racial and ethnic data from students and staff; (2) How educational institutions and other recipients will aggregate racial and ethnic data when reporting those data to the Department; and (3) How data on multiple races will be reported and aggregated under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as reauthorized by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). In addition, this final guidance provides information regarding the implementation schedule for these changes. 1 See OMB, Revisions to the Standards for the Classification of Federal Data on Race and Ethnicity, 62 FR 58782–58790 (October 30, 1997); http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/fedreg/ 1997standards.html.
