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, most of which is 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 2015-16 CRDC. KDE will assist districts with the data load and preparation similar to the 2013-14 collection.
Districts will need to verify the data that KDE loads and enter other district/school data. Ultimately, the districts are responsible for the quality of the CRDC data.
