Office for Civil Rights Annual Report to Congress, Fiscal Year 2006
US Department of Education
In this report, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) provides a summary of its substantive achievements in FY 2006. OCR's mission is to ensure equal access to education and to promote educational excellence throughout the nation through vigorous enforcement of civil rights. This report details OCR's accomplishments in enforcing the civil rights laws under which OCR has been granted jurisdiction to address and remedy discrimination. These enforcement efforts include complaint investigation and resolution, and proactive enforcement through compliance reviews and technical assistance, as well as regulatory and policy development. This report also highlights OCR's efforts to improve its enforcement capabilities by promoting management excellence. Even in light of shrinking resources and increasing complaint receipts, OCR continues to accomplish its mission and meet the highest performance and quality standards. The report divides into three sections: (1) Overview of OCR's Structure and Program; (2) Ensuring Access to Education: Getting Results; and (3) Looking Ahead. Appended are: (A) Offices and Addresses; (B) FY 2006 Complaint Receipts, by Jurisdiction and OCR Enforcement Office; and (C) Sample of OCR Technical Assistance Publications. (Contains 9 footnotes, 9 figures, and 3 tables.) [For the FY 2005 report, see ED494079.]
