  • Abstract

    The Fall 1994 Elementary and Secondary Civil Rights Compliance Report was conducted by Opportunity Systems Incorporated (OSI) for the Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights (OCR). Selected school districts throughout the country were required to complete a district-level form with summary information (ED101). In addition, each school within the district was required to complete a school-level form (ED102) that provided information on that individual school campus. Variables in the district questionnaire cover the number of public schools in the district, school membership, number of children and youths with disabilities, pregnant students, and non-IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act)-eligible children and youths. Items on the school questionnaire include information on grades offered, special education, ability grouping, and magnet schools or programs. Five data elements on the school form (corporal punishment, suspension, high school diploma, certificate of attendance or completion, and interscholastic athletics) are retrospective and pertain to the previous (1993-1994) school year.
