On this page...

The Consolidated Accountability and Support Application (CASA) is designed to be a one-stop shop for compliance information in all areas. This application will house requirements for Chapter 14 - General Accreditation, federal requirements including ESSA and IDEA, as well as Comprehensive School Improvement Plans and desk audits. These changes are being made to limit the number of sources of information and reduce the burden on districts and consultants. Additionally, this new application will serve as a single place to enter plans for improvement and streamline reporting of basic information for Differentiated Accountability.
