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.
Changes for the 2017-18 data collection that begins in late 2018:
- High school equivalency and Advanced Placement course exam results will not be collected.
- Student chronic absenteeism data will be obtained through the EDFacts collection and no longer be collected from schools.
Steps to take now for the 2017-18 data collection:
The KDE and CRDC webpages will be updated as new information becomes available about the survey
forms and requirements for the 2017-18 CRDC.
