The U.S. Department of Education (ED) 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 assisted districts with the data load and preparation. Districts verified their data that KDE loaded and entered other district/school data. Ultimately, districts are responsible for the quality of their data for the CRDC.
The Office for Civil Rights is conducting a quality review of the 2015-16 data and their feedback and outreach to districts is tentatively scheduled to begin in mid-August. The CRDC Partner Support Center will notify districts via email when further information is available.
