Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC)

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) announced that the Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) has proposed collections for the 2021-22 and 2023-24 School Year. Once the proposed CRDCs are approved, OCR will notify LEA Superintendents and post additional information on the CRDC Resource Center.

As we have done in the past, the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) will identify CRDC data currently being collected at the state level and upload that data on behalf of districts and schools, reducing the burden on LEAs. Districts are ultimately responsible for the data reported on the CRDC and can choose whether or not they would like to use the KSDE-supplied data. More information on opting out of using the KSDE-supplied data will be provided in the near future.
