About Federal Compliance/OCR
Nevada recipients and sub-recipients of federal financial assistance from the U.S. Department of Education are bound by federally mandated and regulated statutes to follow civil rights requirements in vocational programs.
The purpose of the office for Federal Compliance, part of the Career, Technical and Adult Education, the Nevada Department of Education, is to provide assistance to these recipients and sub-recipients with meeting the basic expectations set forth by the U.S. Department of Education.
The Office for Federal Compliance works closely with the US Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) on civil rights compliance issues impacting educational entities within the state of Nevada.
