Federal Ethnicity and Race setting update

An update was made to the data passed from SIS to Unified Insights regarding the Federal Ethnicity and Race codes for all states. With this change, if the Federal Category code is set for Race, then that data is passed from SIS. Conversely, if the Federal Category code is NOT set for Race, then the District Race code is passed from SIS. This change applies to each individual Race code.
