Instructions for completing the Consolidated Application (ConApp) for Funding Categorical Aid Programs for the 2019–20 Winter and Spring Releases.

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

Introduction

This web page contains instructions for completing the data collections included in the Consolidated Application (ConApp) Winter Release and Spring Release. It is intended primarily for local educational agency (LEA) staff who are involved in the completion of the ConApp using the Consolidated Application and Reporting System (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 General Assurances of the Consolidated Application Legal Assurances that are posted on the California Department of Education Consolidated Application web page.
