2015-2016 CRDC Collection


The U.S. Department of Education [ED] conducts the Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC), formerly the Elementary and Secondary School Survey (E&S Survey), to collect data on key education and civil rights issues in our nation's public schools. The CRDC collects a variety of information including, student enrollment and educational programs and services, disaggregated by race/ethnicity, sex, limited English proficiency and disability. The CRDC is a longstanding and important aspect of the ED Office for Civil Right's overall strategy for administering and enforcing the civil rights statutes for which it is responsible. Information collected by the CRDC is also used by other ED offices as well as policymakers and researchers outside of ED.

Request to Decline CDE Pre-population of 2015-16 CRDC

Some local education agencies prefer to provide all of the CRDC data without any assistance.  If your local education agency does not want the department to prepopulate CRDC with approved data, please complete this form by Friday, December 30, 2016. Forms may be submitted to Jan Rose Petro at or by fax at 303-866-6888.

Colorado Data Provision CRDC Overview

The Colorado Department of Education is dedicated to submitting what 2015-16 data we have collected from local education agencies into the Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) system to assist districts with this federal collection.  Our plan is to submit as much data that we can.  Then CDE will leave it to districts to fill in the missing information and update any data.
