The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) is in the planning stages of another Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) for 2013-14. The proposed 2013-14 and 2015-16 CRDC are expected to be universal collections in which every public school and school district in the country will be selected to participate. The CRDC 2013-14 window is expected to open October 2014 and close in January 2015. Local districts are encouraged to begin collecting data over the summer of 2014.
