Civil Rights Data Collection Information

Published: 7/28/2015 10:40 PM

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 assisted districts with the data load for this collection and will post updates here to help ensure they have the tools and information to fulfill their CRDC requirements. ​​

2013-14 Data Collection

  • 4/16/2015 - The U.S. Office of Civil Rights (OCR) sent each superintendent CRDC information along with a user name and password to access the CRDC system.
  • 5/1/2015 - On behalf of schools and districts, KDE loaded data for district validation.
  • 5/15/2015 - The district validation period ended. No issues were found that necessitated a reload of KDE data.
  • 5/18/2015 - KDE sent notification to districts that CRDC was open for district data entry.
  • 6/4/2015 - OCR discovered a technical issue that directly affects the Enrollment and Program Enrollment (Gifted & Talented, Dual Enrollment, Credit Recovery) modules. OCR has requested that all Kentucky school districts not access the CRDC submission system or make changes to data already stored in the CRDC submission system. OCR is working on the issue and will allow all Kentucky school districts extra time for the completion of the 2013-14 CRDC.
  • 8/21/2015 - Deadline for completion; all data should be verified and certified.

Outstanding issue - The CRDC requires reporting of "Basis of Bullying"; however, Infinite Campus does not collect this information. KDE has requested that Infinite Campus add "Basis of Bullying" to its collection for future years.

In cases such as this, where a school or district is unable to provide data for the 2013-14 CRDC, OCR may require an action plan to ensure that the data can be submitted in the 2015-16 CRDC collection. KDE is working with OCR on a statewide solution and additional guidance will be provided.
