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 - firstname.lastname@example.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. 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.)

SUBJECT LINE: Important information about CRDC Launch
We are pleased to announce the opportunity to access the new and improved Civil Rights Data Collection submission system for 2013-14. Starting on April 16th, you will have access to many features of the new and improved CRDC submission system including data entry, file uploads, error reports, and new tools to add additional users and grant permissions. We encourage you to use this time to start the data entry process and begin submitting flat files.
By 8pm EST on April 16th, you will receive an email from email@example.com with information to set up your account. We encourage you to add this address to your trusted senders list to ensure these emails are not categorized as spam.
School districts across the nation have provided valuable insight and feedback to design the submission system for the 2013-14 CRDC. We hope you find the new system is user-friendly, intuitive, and improves the data submission process.
Recently, school districts have also made us aware that it is important to start the data submission phase as there are many other important tasks that happen during the spring and end-of-year. In response, we are opening all features of the new tool that have been thoroughly tested and are ready for use.
However, there is still more work to be done to ensure certain features such as the final certification check perform efficiently during peak times, particularly near the due date. It is important to the Office for Civil Rights and the Partner Support Center that the new tool provides a positive first experience and performs efficiently throughout the duration of the data collection phase. These final critical functions will be undergoing the last remaining extensive test over the next two weeks. Rather than delay the opening until all features are available, we wanted to be responsive to school districts feedback, given that most of the core functionality for the site is ready for your use.
Below is a preview of a few of the key improvements made to the 2013-14 CRDC online tool that you can access starting on April 16th:
