2016-2017 Consolidated Application



The Consolidated Application is the Local Educational Agency's (LEA’s) plan to the State Educational Agency (SEA), specifically the Colorado Department of Education (CDE), to use federal Title I, Part A, Title II Part A, Title III, Part A, and Title VI Part B funds. Through the online application, applicants will provide a description of how funds are used to provide all children a significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close educational achievement gaps.

The 2016-2017 funding year is a “bridge” year between No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requirements for the release of federal funds in FY2016-17. In anticipation of the move to the new law, the Consolidated Application has been updated to a new platform. The new platform features a modular design and progressive disclosure which customizes each district application.

For the 2017-2018 school year, applications will be completed using the new platform that will be used to collect a comprehensive LEA plan based on the requirements described under ESSA.
