Quick Summary / Abstract:
Background: The Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS) is used by the California Department of Education (CDE) to distribute categorical funds from various federal programs to school districts throughout California. Annually, each Local Educational Agency (LEA) completes the application to document participation in these programs and provide assurances that they will comply with the legal requirements of each program. Program entitlements are determined by formulas contained in the laws that created the programs.

Participation in these categorical programs requires the completion of the following applications:
