2020-2021 CRDC Data Submissions From NDE Are Complete

All data submissions from NDE on behalf of districts for the 2020-2021 Office of Civil Rights CRDC collection have been completed. NDE will not be uploading any additional data, so districts are now encouraged to log into CRDC’s submission website and check any data that NDE submitted. Districts must make corrections, fill in missing data, and lock in their data through the CRDC website by the due date of February 28, 2022. Reminder – districts can find CRDC guidance and instructions through their Resource Center website.

NDE 2020-2021 CRDC Submissions – Districts To Submit After January 10

Public School Districts Only

The Civil Rights Data Collection submission system is set to open for submitting data on December 13. NDE will provide part of the required submissions based on what has already been reported within ADVISER for 2020-2021. However, as NDE and districts can overwrite each other’s entries, NDE recommends that districts do not enter any data into the CRDC submission system before January 10 (unless your district has opted out of having CRDC data submitted by NDE).

By January 10, 2022 NDE will submit data for public districts that haven’t opted out based on the numbers in the CRDC reports within the ADVISER Validation website (specifically the “Locked” reporting window version of each report). Please refer to the ADVISER Validation reports to see which sections of the CRDC are covered, and keep in mind that you are submitting 2020-2021 data for your 2020-2021 school buildings at this time. Data that NDE submits is not finalized and should be reviewed and edited by districts after January 10. After finishing edits and adding any missing data, all districts must “certify” their data in the CRDC submission system by February 28.

If your district does not yet have an administrator with a login to the CRDC Submission System, please visit the CRDC Resource Center for info about getting access. All public districts must participate in CRDC, therefore every district needs a login.

If your district would like to opt out from NDE submitting some or all CRDC data on your behalf, please send an email to the help desk at if you have not already contacted us. Opted out districts are free to begin data entry on December 13.

Counselor and Library/Media Specialists Not Endorsed 2021-2022


Public School Districts, Special Purpose Schools and Nonpublic Systems

The Counselor and Library/Media Specialists Not Endorsed 2021-2022 collection opens November 30, 2021.  This collection can be found in the NDE Portal under the Data Collections tab.  An activation code is required to add the collection to Portal accounts, which can be obtained from the District Administrator.  The collection is designed to identify any guidance counselors or library/media specialists who are not currently endorsed in these areas but are serving in that capacity while enrolled in a program to complete their endorsements.

The site allows districts to annually update the progress being made by the identified individuals toward their completion of either the counselor or library/media specialist endorsement.

NOTE: The option for allowing individuals not properly endorsed to serve in either capacity is described in Rule 10, Section 007.04B Media/Technology Staff and Section 007.05D Guidance Staff.

The Main Page is visible upon entering the collection. Select the Enter/Edit Data button to access online data entry.
