CARS Update Flash #27

Memo to local educational agency (LEA) representatives to provide updates on the most recent CARS release of three Title I, Part A data collections and the CARS Annual Reporting Cycle At a Glance document.

To:            LEA Staff

From:       Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS) Project Team

Date:        October 19, 2012

CARS Releases

This afternoon, as part of the scheduled maintenance, the following data collections will open for submission with a due date of November 9, 2012.

  • Title I, Part A School Student Demographics
  • Title I, Part A School Service Area Report
  • Title I, Part A School Funded Staff Report

Instructions for these data collections are being mailed along with this Newsflash and will be posted on the CARS web page once they have been approved.

Please note that although the data entry form will be available for these data, some of the reports are still being developed and will be released soon. Rather than waiting until the reports were developed, we chose to release the data entry forms (which are operational now) so that LEAs will have time to start entering the data. We will let you know when the reports for these data collections have been released, but there is now nothing preventing LEAs from entering and submitting the data now. We encourage you to get started as soon as possible.

CARS Annual Reporting Cycle

We are also sending a document entitled CARS Annual Reporting Cycle At a Glance that was based on a tool developed by Orange County Office of Education. We appreciate Orange County sharing this and have updated and adapted it. We hope you will find this useful and we will periodically update it.

For More Information on CARS

You can find more information on the CARS Web page.

If you have any further questions regarding CARS, feel free to e-mail the Consolidated Application (ConApp) Support Desk.
