Annually, the Hueneme Elementary School District completes and submits the Consolidated Application to the state of California. The Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS) is used by the California Department of Education (CDE) to distribute categorical funds from various state and federal programs to county offices, school districts, and direct-funded charter schools throughout California. Annually, in June, each local educational agency (LEA) submits Part I of the application to document participation in these programs and provide assurances that the district will comply with the legal requirements of each program. Program entitlements are determined by formulas contained in the laws that created the programs. Part II of the ConApp for Funding Categorical Aid Programs primarily contains information related to entitlements, allocations, and numbers of participants in specified programs. Part II must be submitted electronically to the California Department of Education (CDE) by January 31.

The Consolidated Application and Reporting System is used by California Department of Education to distribute categorical funds from various state and federal programs (e.g., Title I, Title II, TItle III, Economic Impact Aid, etc.) to county offices, school districts, and charter schools throughout California. In June of each year, every local educational agency (LEA) submits Part I of the application to document participation in categorical programs and provide assurances that the LEA will comply with the legal requirements of each program. Part II of the application, submitted in January of the following year, contains the LEA's entitlements for each funded program. Out of each state and federal program entitlement, LEAs allocate funds for indirect costs of administration for programs operated by the LEA and for programs operated at schools.

If you would like additional information on the Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS), please call the Department of Educational Projects at 805.488.3588 or email ivillanueva@hueneme.org.
