Consolidated Application for ESEA Title Programs


On this page...

Located in the Consolidated Accountability and Support Application (CASA), the Consolidated Application for Federal ESEA Title Programs:

  • Is where public agencies (e.g., districts, AEAs, state agencies) complete and submit required program information, such as:
    • Nonpublic consultation agreements,
    • Annual fund “transfers” between allowable sources (transfers are in use only and must always be coded to their original source),
    • Annual program applications,
    • Quarterly reimbursement claims, and
    • End-of-year reports.
  • Simplifies and seeks to reduce burden by unifying:
    • All nonpublic consultation agreements.
    • Nearly all program application due dates.
    • All reimbursement claim periods and payments.
    • Requirements for general ledgers.

Consolidated Application Requirements

Program Applications Due October 15

The Consolidated Application for Federal Title Programs includes the following subgrant programs:

Reimbursement Claims Due Each Quarter

Each quarter, the public agency must submit a reimbursement claim (supported by a year-to-date general ledger) for each funded program. Zero-dollar claims are permissible but discouraged. The public agency's head administrator or school business official must submit the claim by the last day of the claims period. Failure to do so will result in the claim being moved to “Failed to Submit an Approvable Claim,” which impacts the agency's risk assessment and may result in additional monitoring requirements. 

The reimbursement periods are as follows:

Claim Period

Last Day to Submit “Not Started” and “In Progress” Claims

Last Day to Submit Corrections to "Action Required" Claims (Claim Must Have Been Submitted by Last Day of Claims Period)
Quarter 1: November 1 - 30  November 30 December 10
Quarter 2: January 1 - 31 January 31 February 10
Quarter 3: April 1 - 30  April 30 May 10
Quarter 4: June 1 - July 15 (expenditures MUST be made by June 30th) July 15 July 25
