Title of Collection: Mandatory Civil Rights Data Collection. OMB Control Number: 1870–0504. Type of Review: Revision of an existing information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local or Tribal Governments. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 17,621. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 1,487,068. Abstract: The collection, use, and reporting of education data is an integral component of the mission of the U.S. Department of Education (ED). EDFacts, an ED initiative to put performance data at the center of ED’s policy, management, and budget decisionmaking processes for all K–12 education programs, has transformed the way in which ED collects and uses data. For school years 2009–10 and 2011–12, the Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) was approved by OMB as part of the EDFacts information collection (1875–0240). For school years 2013–14, 2015–16, and 2017–18, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) cleared the CRDC as a separate collection from EDFacts. The currently proposed revised CRDC information collection for school year 2020–21 is modeled after the most recent OMBapproved EDFacts information collection (1850–0925). For the 2020–21 CRDC, OCR is proposing some changes, and those changes will have the net effect of reducing burden on school districts. As with previous CRDC collections, the purpose of the 2020–21 CRDC is to obtain vital data related to the civil rights laws’ requirement that public local educational agencies (LEAs) and elementary and secondary schools provide equal educational opportunity. ED has analyzed the uses of many data elements collected in the 2013–14 and 2015–16 CRDCs and sought advice from experts across ED to refine, improve, and where appropriate, add or remove data elements from the collection. ED also made the CRDC data definitions and metrics consistent with other mandatory collections across ED wherever possible. ED seeks OMB approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act to collect from LEAs, the elementary and secondary education data described in the sections of Attachment A. In addition, ED requests that LEAs and other stakeholders respond to the directed questions found in Attachment A–5. PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Dated: June 30, 2020.
