Office of Civil Rights (OCR) Data Collection

Information for this data collection coming soon.

The purpose of the U.S. Department of Education’s Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) is to obtain data related to the nation's public school districts’ and elementary and secondary schools’ obligation to provide equal educational opportunity. To fulfill this goal, the CRDC collects a variety of information, including student enrollment and educational programs and services data, that are disaggregated by race/ethnicity, sex, limited English proficiency, and disability. The CRDC is a longstanding and important aspect of the Department’s Office for Civil Rights overall strategy for administering and enforcing the civil rights statutes for which it is responsible. This information is also used for policymaking by other ED offices, other federal agencies, and researchers outside of ED.

Refer to this section for North Carolina state CRDC setup items at the District, School, Staff, and Student levels and for CRDC report details.

The NC DPI will extract the data available from state level systems for LEAs and Charter schools and upload the data to the Federal Submission Portal.

Important:  The NC DPI will only extract data elements for this collection that are already required at the state level for other reporting purposes.  LEAs and Charter schools are required to provide any remaining data elements not already collected by the state and Certify the data collection within the Federal Submission Portal.

Report Input

Run Report Collection

This report collection is run at the LEA and School level.

Use the following steps to generate the Office of Civil Rights Data Collection. The reports must be run at the LEA or Charter to participate in the State upload. These collections contain both district and school level aggregate data.

  1. On the Start Page, click State Reports. The Dashboard page appears and displays a list of data collections for the school.
  2. Next to the PowerSchool CRDC Preview Report - Part 1, click Run.
  3. The system validates the data against the business rules set up for the collection and completes the process.
  4. Users have 24 hours to approve their data collection. If approval is not done within the 24 hours, the users must re-run the collection.
  5. Repeat these steps to run the PowerSchool CRDC Preview Report - Part 2.

The reports may be run at the School level and display school level data as it will be submitted to the Office of Civil Rights. This level of views contain detail reports that allow reviewers to identify specific students and courses included in the collection.

LEAs and Charter schools that use third party software to house data elements specific to the CRDC collection that are not integrated into the PowerSchool instance are responsible for providing that data to the OCR. Examples include Athletic Eligibility data, Incident data and Section 504 data.
