2019–20 ConApp Winter Release Reopened Forms

Instructions for completing the Consolidated Application (ConApp) for Funding Categorical Aid Programs forms for the 2019–20 Winter Release that have temporarily been reopened.

2019–20 Winter Release Reopened Data Collections

In response to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Federal Department of Education has granted California’s request for a federal flexibility waiver. As a result, local educational agencies (LEAs) will be given an opportunity to revise their federal funding pages in the Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS) for the 2019–20 Winter Release. Specific waiver information can be found on the California Department of Education (CDE) Coronavirus (COVID-19) Federal Funding Flexibility web page.

The data collections below have had changes to the CARS Instructions since the original instructions posted on January 15, 2020. The complete list of the 2019–20 Winter Release CARS Instructions, can be found on the 2019–20 ConApp Program Instructions web page under the 2019–20 CARS Winter Release heading. Please note that only selected forms listed in the Fiscal Year 2018–19 and 2019–20 headings will be reopened for editing.

If an LEA needs a data collection reopened that is not included in the list of forms on the CARS Home tab, please see the second question in the Revisions section on the CDE CARS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) web page.

Questions about why the forms have been reopened or what information is allowed to be edited should be directed to the CDE program contacts which are included on the Instructions for each data collection. Program contacts can also be found in the bottom right hand corner for each data collection when a user is logged into CARS. Note: CARS support staff can only answer technical questions related to CARS, such as how to resolve an error message, and cannot answer program related questions.
