Subject:    CARS Update FLASH #40

2013 Winter Release Data Collections Are Open

The 2013 Winter data collections are open for submission and are due Friday, February 28, 2014. As always, we urge you to prepare and submit your data as soon as possible rather than waiting for “rush hour” (i.e., the week of the deadline). Typically, 45 percent of LEAs submit the week of the deadline. The CARS system performance can be very slow during the final week due to the high volume of traffic.
