The purpose of Title I, Part D is to improve:

  • Improve educational services for children and youth in local and state institutions for neglected or delinquent children and youth so that such children and youth have the opportunity to meet the same challenging state academic content standards and challenging state student academic achievement standards that all children in the state are expected to meet;
  • Provide such children and youth with the services needed to make a successful transition from institutionalization to further schooling or employment; and
  • Prevent at-risk youth from dropping out of school, and to provide dropouts, and children and youth returning from correctional facilities or institutions for neglected or delinquent children and youth, with a support system to ensure their continued education.

Title I, Part D - Neglected and Delinquent Education

Title I, Part D, Subpart 1, State Agency Neglected and Delinquent (N and D) program provides formula grants to State Educational Agencies (SEAs) for supplementary education services to help provide education continuity for children and youths in state-run institutions for juveniles and in adult correctional institutions so that these youths can make successful transitions to school or employment once they are released. Funds are allocated by formula to SEAs, which make subgrants to the state agencies responsible for educating neglected or delinquent children and youths. To be eligible for state N and D funds, juvenile institutions must provide 20 hours a week of instruction from nonfederal fund; and adult correctional institutions must provide 15 hours.
The Subpart 2 Local Education Agency Program requires each SEA to reserve from its Title I, Part A, allocation, funds generated by the number of children in locally operated institutions for delinquent youths. Funds are awarded to local educational agencies (LEAs) with high proportions of youths in local correctional facilities to support dropout prevention programs for at-risk youths.
