Report Intro/Brief:
The 2013-14 Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC)  is a survey of all public schools and school districts in the United States. The CRDC measures student access to courses, programs, instructional and other staff, and resources — as well as school climate factors, such as student discipline and bullying and harassment — that impact education equity and opportunity for students.

The purpose of the CRDC is to obtain data related to the obligation of public school districts and of elementary and secondary schools to provide equal educational opportunity. Since 1968, the CRDC has collected a variety of information, including student enrollment and educational programs and services data that are disaggregated by race/ethnicity, sex, English learner status, and disability, from public schools across the nation.

The CRDC is a longstanding and important aspect of the Office for Civil Rights’ overall strategy for administering and enforcing the civil rights statutes for which it is responsible. Other ED offices, as well as policymakers and researchers outside of ED, also use CRDC information. Additionally, the CRDC database, with hundreds of data elements, is fully accessible to the public. School districts self-report and certify all data presented.”
