How to Submit

Who Must File

The Elementary – Secondary Staff Information Report (EEO-5), EEOC Form 168A, also referred to as the EEO-5 Report, is a mandatory biennial data collection that requires all public elementary and secondary school systems and districts with 100 or more employees to submit demographic workforce data, including data by race/ethnicity and sex, and activity assignment classification. The filing by eligible school systems or districts is required under section 709(c) of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 2000e-8(c), 29 CFR 1602.39 and .41-.45.

Only school systems or districts located in the 50 States and the District of Columbia, should be reported. No reports should be filed for school systems or districts in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, or other American protectorates. However, reports are required for school system or district employees regularly employed within the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
