CARS News Flash #41

NewsFlash #41 was sent to LEA representatives to remind LEAs to certify the data collections as early as possible to avoid the last minute rush, and to announce that the 2013 Winter Webinar is available.

To:            Local Educational Agency Staff

From:       CARS Project Team

Date:        February 14, 2014

Avoiding Rush Hour

The deadline date for local educational agencies (LEAs) to submit the 2013 Winter data collections is fast approaching – February 28. As we near the deadline date, traffic volume increases dramatically, and those local educational agencies (LEAs) that wait until the last few days to submit will experience slower response times. To date, about 20 percent of LEAs have completed all of their 2013 Winter data collections. They’ve avoided rush the hour.

We have optimized the performance of the Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS) to the extent possible; however, we cannot prevent or control traffic volume. As always, we strongly encourage you to submit and certify your data as soon as possible.
