U.S. Department Of Education Announces Civil Rights Data Collection For 2021-2022 School Year.
On August 13, 2021, the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR) announced that it will administer a 2021-2022 Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC). The Department indicated that the effort is aimed at gathering data to help ascertain the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on student learning and success.
The CRDC is a biennial survey of K-12 public schools that gathers and publishes information about student access to educational resources, use of discipline, and student experiences of harassment and assault. The Department collects the data to ensure schools and districts are complying with civil rights laws, including Title IV and Title IX.
This is the first time OCR has conducted a CRDC two years in a row, for 2020-2021 and 2021-2022.
