Why This Indicator Matters

Disaggregated data is presented to provide a preliminary understanding of disparities by race and ethnicity. On its own, this data tells a limited story about the populations it represents. We encourage users of this data to engage with communities of color to develop a more accurate and meaningful understanding than these data allow.

Footnotes: Data last updated in February 2021 by Washington KIDS COUNT.

These data are from October 1 headcount enrollment numbers.

Race/ethnicity is self-reported by either students or parents/guardians. When students report more than one racial/ethnic categories, OSPI reports the category listed first. Therefore, the racial/ethnic categories are not mutually exclusive.

The sum of racial/ethnic categories may not add to exact 100% due to rounding.
