You can file a request for the 2015-16 academic year data from your local district by using the tools attached below the following webinar about finding and using OCR data. The webinar describes how you can find your 2013-14 data on OCR's website, and also how to request the data from 2015-16. We encourage educators, researchers and advocates to file requests directly with the districts under your state's sunshine act.
