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.
