2019–20 Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS) Spring Release

Introduction

This web page contains instructions for completing the data collection forms included in the Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS) Spring Release. It is intended primarily for local educational agency (LEA) staff who are involved in the completion of the Consolidated Application (ConApp) using the CARS, but may also be helpful to anyone who is reviewing the ConApp.

The CARS is a web-based system to apply for funding, collect and report ConApp data, and track categorical program expenditures and activities. The LEA must print the certified ConApp. The Certification of Assurances page must be signed by the LEA Authorized Representative and the entire ConApp must be kept on file in the office of the LEA, per the 2019–20 Consolidated Application Legal Assurances that are posted on the California Department of Education Consolidated Application web page.
