The United States Office of Civil Rights (OCR) 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 the data is disaggregated by race/ethnicity, sex, limited English proficiency and disability.
The CRDC is a local education agency (LEA) data collection, and each district is responsible for reporting and the quality of its data. To minimize the burden on districts, the Kentucky Department of Education helps by prepopulating data that is available at the state level.
