Civil Rights Data Collection
The Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) is a biennial (i.e., every other school year) survey required by the U.S. Department of Education’s (Department) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) since 1968. Similar to the 2011–12, 2013–14, and 2015–16 CRDCs, the 2017–18 CRDC will collect data from a universe of all public local educational agencies (LEA) and schools, including juvenile justice facilities, charter schools, alternative schools, and schools serving students with disabilities.

National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)
NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what America’s students know and can do in various subject areas. When students, their parents, teachers, and principals participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress they are helping to inform decisions about how to improve the education system in our country.

EDFacts is a U.S. Department of Education (ED) initiative to collect, analyze, and promote the use of high-quality, pre-kindergarten through grade 12 data.

National Center for Education Statistics (NCES)

Every Student Succeeds Act
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015. This bipartisan measure reauthorizes the 50-year-old Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the nation’s national education law and longstanding commitment to equal opportunity for all students.
