Abstract: Section 709(c) of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 2000e-8(c), requires employers to make and keep records relevant to a determination of whether unlawful employment practices have been or are being committed, to preserve such records, and to produce reports as the Commission prescribes by regulation or order. Accordingly, the EEOC issued regulations, Title 29, Chapter XIV, Subpart F, § 1602.39-45, prescribing the reporting requirements for elementary and secondary public school districts. The EEOC uses EEO-5 data to investigate charges of employment discrimination against elementary and secondary public school districts. The data also are used for research. The data are shared with the Department of Education (Office for Civil Rights) and the Department of Justice. Pursuant to Section 709(d) of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, EEO-5 data also are shared with state and local Fair Employment Practices Agencies (FEPAs).

Revisions to the form that amended the race and ethnicity categories were approved by OMB in 2012. The previously used categories (White, Black, Hispanic, Asian or Pacific Islander, and American Indian or Alaska Native) were replaced with the following: Hispanic or Latino; White; Black or African American; Asian; Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander; American Indian or Alaska Native; and Two or More Races. EEOC is seeking a three year extension without change of the form approved by OMB in 2012.

Burden Statement: The estimated number of respondents included in the biennial EEO-5 survey is 6,190 public elementary and secondary school districts. The form is estimated to impose 15,475 burden hours biennially.
