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
