The U.S. Department of Education (ED) conducts the Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) to collect data on key education and civil rights issues in our nation's public schools. The CRDC collects a variety of information, including student enrollment and educational programs and services, disaggregated by race/ethnicity, sex, limited English proficiency and disability.
Every public school and school district in the country is required to respond to the 2013-14 CRDC. KDE will post updates here to help ensure Kentucky schools and districts have the tools and information to fulfill their CRDC requirements.
Tentative CRDC Schedule
- During the fist two days CRDC is open, districts that want to opt out of the KDE data load should go into the system and make their selection.
- During the next two days, KDE will load data.
- For two weeks following the KDE data load, Districts will review the data loaded by KDE in the CRDC on-line system.
- During the next two days, if any isses are identified, KDE will reload data. (Note: Districts can opt out after the initial load and before the reload.)
- After any data reload, districts should begin entering data.
- CRDC will close NO SOONER than 75 days after the opening date.
