School Finance has received questions about emails that districts have received related to EEO-5 data collection. ADE will complete the submission of 2020 data for all districts that are required to submit by the October 4, 2021 due date.
The EEO-5 Report, formally known as the Elementary-Secondary Staff Information Report, is a joint requirement of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) of the U.S. Department of Education. It is conducted biennially, in the even numbered years, and covers all public elementary and secondary school districts with 100 or more employees in the United States. The submission of this data was delayed in May 2020 in light of the COVID-19 public health emergency.
Mandated under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, this report provides information on the district employment totals, employees’ job category, and sex and race/ethnic groups as of October 1 of the survey year. More information on this Report can be found here.
