  • Every accredited school must send in an electronic copy of the Cumulative Annual Report (CAR) to the FLGA District Office by April 15.
  • Your application for re-accreditation is also due in the District office by October 1 the year before your current accreditation expires.  (i.e. if your accreditation expires at the end of the 2019-2020 school year, you must reapply for accreditation by October 1 of 2018.)

Cumulative Annual Report (CAR)

  1. Your CAR should be a report of items worked during the current school year.
  2. Each year you should add to the report of the previous year.
  3. In the last year of accreditation you will have a team visit, and your report will be the Visiting Team Report (VTR) rather than a CAR.
  4. An electronic copy of the CAR must be submitted to the District Office by April 15.
