Title I Part D: Neglected, Delinquent, or At-Risk

Program Purpose

The general purpose of the Neglected and Delinquent programs are to improve educational services for children and youth in local and state institutions for neglected or delinquent children, providing them with the opportunity to meet the same rigorous state academic content standards that are expected of all students. The program provides needed services for children and youth to make a successful transition from institutionalization to further schooling or employment. The intent of the program is to prevent at risk youth from dropping out of school and to provide them with a support system to ensure their continued education toward a high school diploma. 

Part D Subpart 1: State Agencies 

The program provides financial assistance to State agencies to operate educational programs for children in institutions for delinquent children and for youth in adult correctional facilities.

Part D Subpart 2: Local Institutions

Funds are allocated for this subpart based on annual data collected on the number of children and youth (ages 5-17) living in local institutions for delinquent children for at least one day during the 30 day count period. Students who are eligible to be served are those living in local delinquent facilities who are 21 years of age or younger

Neglected Facilities

Title I Part A funds are allocated through LEAs to support public or private residential facilities, other than foster homes, that are operated for the care of children who have been committed to the institution or voluntarily placed in the institution under applicable State law due to the abandonment, neglect, or death of their parents.
