The U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights collects data annually to review student populations facing discrimination in programs that receive federal funding such as public schools. Collecting this data previously has been time consuming and cumbersome - up until now. Public schools can now utilize this jmc report to quickly find all of the data needed to satisfy filling out the CRDC spreadsheet through more intuitive querying.

In jmc Office, click your state in the menu tree and head to Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) > Courses.

Step One: Select the date from the "Include Students Active as of Day" box to filter which students are included in your report.

Helpful Tip: Refer to your state's CRDC reporting guidelines to determine the date to set in Step One. Reporting dates vary by state and query.

Step Two: Select one or more courses by entering the course name in the "Available Courses" drop-down list.

A few helpful tips:

  • Select the jmc course or courses that match the description on the CRDC spreadsheet. For example, if the CRDC spreadsheet asks for "Grade 7 Students who Passed Algebra 1" then select all jmc courses equivalent to Algebra.

  • Click on a course in the "Selected Courses" box to remove it from the report.

Step Three: Select a student grade level range using the "From" and "To" drop-down lists in the "Grade" box to match the description on the CRDC spreadsheet.

Helpful Tip: If the CRDC spreadsheet asks for "Grade 7 Students who Passed Algebra 1" then select "7" in the "From" and "To" drop-down lists to run the report for 7th graders.

Step Four: Click the "Preview" button to view the number of students enrolled in the selected classes who meet civil rights data collection points.

Step Five: Click the "Print" button to print the previewed number of students enrolled in the selected classes.

Step Six: Repeat all steps to complete each of the required CRDC sections listed on the CRDC spreadsheet.

Helpful Tip: CRDC reports generally seek data from the previous school year. You can change the school year by selecting the correct year from the "Switch Year" drop-down list.
