CRDC common data collection implementation for 2020-2021

The Common Data Entry updates for the 2020-2021 Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) are now available.

  • The Schools/School Info CRDC page is updated to include:
      • Data entry for aggregate sexual assault or rape offenses involving staff members. This is optional for the 2020-2021 collection.
      • Data entry for aggregate staff and security staff FTE counts.
    • The Courses and Sections CRDC pages are updated to no longer allow the selection of the AP category “OT – Other”.
    • Data elements that are no longer collected for the 2020-21 submission are moved to deprecated field sections at the bottom of the respective CRDC pages.

    These new data fields and changes are applicable to states that have implemented Common CRDC pages. State-specific CRDC pages will be updated in a future release. Student discipline CRDC updates for all states will also be implemented in a future release.

    A new CodeSet Mapping for Relation is added to the Code Set Mappings page. PowerSchool Relationship Code Sets (used for Unlimited Contacts) can be mapped to State/Ed-Fi values.
    The Student Contact Resource first uses any mapped Relation found. If a mapping is not completed, the relation is compared to the State/Ed-Fi value to find the correct match. If no matches are found, the relation, "Other" is used when publishing.
    Note: When the PowerSchool relation is "Stepmother" or "Stepfather" and no mapping is found, these values are converted to "Mother, Step" and "Father, Step" to match the state/Ed-Fi values).
