The Iowa Department of Education (Department) designed the Consolidated Accountability and Support Application (CASA) to be the single location for public school districts, public and accredited nonpublic schools, and area education agencies (AEAs) to provide mandatory compliance information and enter improvement plans. Specifically, the application collects information to comply with state and federal requirements, such as those specified in Chapter 12 (General Accreditation Standards); the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA); and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
The Department made these changes to streamline the reporting process for Differentiated Accountability and reduce the burden on districts, schools, AEAs, and the Department's consultants.
