The Civil Rights Data Collection form is designed to assist you with collecting data for the 2020-21 U.S. Department of Education Civil Rights Data Collection. This report provides information about the enrollment of, and the educational services provided to, students in public schools by race/ethnicity, sex, and disability. Please note some of the information on this report cannot be calculated by Aeries and must be filled in by hand for each school site.


The next Civil Rights Data Collection is for the 2020-21 school year. According to the Civil Rights Data Collection Resource Center the CRDC Submission Tool will open on February 11, 2022 for the West Coast region and remain open for 75 days. Please check the Civil Rights Data Collection Resource Center for more information about the CRDC collection window, resources, and collection questions.

If values have not already been selected for items in the Codes tab, the default values will display. We encourage users that are tasked with running the Civil Rights report to review and/or set up all of the options and supplementary tables prior to running the reports. That way as updates to the Civil Rights page are released those options will already be populated and will be used to populate the result sections.


At this time (August 2021) the Civil Rights extract file has not been updated to the 2020-21 file layout. The Civil Rights Data can be Processed on the Results tab to review the counts in the various tables, but the file extract cannot be used to upload to the CRDC site.
