The U.S. Department of Education 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. KDE assists districts with the CRDC data preparation and load. Each district is responsible for the quality of its data for the CRDC.
For the 2017-18 Data Quality Phase of the CRDC, LEAs now have permission to revoke their submission’s certification. This functionality is limited to LEA administrator roles, and should only be used when LEAs need to make corrections to their data. LEAs must re-certify their submission before August 15th, 2019.
2017-18 CRDC Data Quality Outreach Manual LEAs should first review the manual before attempting to make any corrections or data notes to familiarize themselves with the data corrections process.
Beginning with 2017-18 School Year, states are required to include prior years' Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) files in their School Report Card. Visit Kentucky's Historical CRDC Data webpage to access CRDC data beginning with the 2015-16 collection. More current information may be available in the card.
