The Consolidated Application (Con App) is used by the California
Department of Education (CDE) to distribute categorical funds from various
state and federal programs to the District. Annually, in June, LAUSD submits
the spring release 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.
The winter release of the application is submitted in February of each year and contains the district entitlements for each funded program. Out of each state and federal program entitlement, the District allocates funds for indirect costs of administration, for programs operated by the district office, and for programs operated at schools.
