Civil Rights Data Collection - Kansas Support

The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) gathers data on key education and civil rights issues in our nation's public schools, tracking performance toward the provision of equal educational opportunity. In the fall of 2014, the U.S. Department of Education will be including all schools and school districts in the nation in the CRDC.

While all data for the CRDC must be submitted by Kansas school districts directly to the U.S. Department of Education, the Kansas State Department of Education is committed to assisting schools and school districts in this process as much as is possible. This website will serve as a central point for information on the CRDC for Kansas educators. As information becomes available, it will be provided here, so come back often to check for updates.

KSDE is committed to assisting districts with the CRDC.  The OCR is redesigning the functionality of the web application so that states can submit data directly to the CRDC.  Districts will still have the responsibility for the data reported on the CRDC and can chose whether or not they would like to use the KSDE supplied data.  Watch for further details about this option to be sent via email communications. 

KSDE email support - crdcks@ksde.org  Only for questions specific to KSDE data pre-population.  All support questions related to functionality and access to the federal CRDC application will need to be sent to the appropriate federal contacts as noted below. 

This Excel document created by KSDE outlines the data elements required in the CRDC.  Using this document, Kansas school districts can determine what additional information will need to be collected in order to complete the CRDC in the fall. The Excel document can be easily sorted and filtered to identify which data elements that districts have previously reported to KSDE that can in turn be aggregated and used to pre-populate the CRDC by KSDE. 

(Note:  KSDE did not include any of the 13-14 optional data elements.)
