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) submission tool will open on Monday, December 13, 2021, to all local education agencies (LEAs) for the 2020-21 school year data submission. LEAs will have the standard 75 calendar days to submit and certify their data by the February 28, 2022, close date.

The OCR also announced that it will administer a 2021-22 CRDC, marking the first time that OCR has conducted a CRDC, including all public-school districts and their schools, two school years in a row – 2020-21 and 2021-22.

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 soon.

NOTE:  This web page will be updated frequently. Check back often for new information.

Until more information and resources are posted on this web page, the OCR CRDC Resource Center is a great starting point for learning about and preparing for the CRDC.
