Civil Rights Data Collection Information

Published: 12/27/2022 10:25 AM

​​​​​​​The United States Office of Civil Rights (OCR) conducts the Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) for data on key education and civil rights issues in our nation's public schools. The CRDC includes 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.

The CRDC is a local education agency (LEA) data collection and each district is responsible for reporting and the quality of its data.  The Kentucky Department of Education assists by prepopulating available data to help minimize the burden on districts.  KDE can populate some but not all data elements; the KY CRDC Reporting Matrix​​ provides details.

​​Availability of collection dates and LEA and School forms

Office of Civil Rights (OCR) will prepare its final proposed 2021-2022 and 2023-2024 CRDCs and submit them to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for approval. 

Once OMB approves the CRDCs, LEAs (districts) will be notified of the collection dates and the LEA and School forms will be made available. The collection dates, resources, links to the LEA and School forms will also be on the CRDC Resource Center website, as soon as they are made available.
