The Title I, Part D, program (also called the Neglected or Delinquent program) is a federally funded program to enable neglected, delinquent, and at-risk students to have the same opportunity as students in other Title-I programs.
The goals of Title I, Part D, are to:
1. Improve educational services for these children so they have the opportunity to meet challenging state academic content and achievement standards;
2. Provide services to succesfully transition students between facility and LEAs; and
3. Prevent youth who are at-risk from dropping out of school, and to provide dropouts and children and youth returning from correctional facilities with a support system to ensure their continued education.
The Title I, Part D, Subpart 1 program serves youth in state-operated institutions. To be eligible for Subpart 1 funds the state-operated juvenile institutions must provide at least 20 hours of instruction form nonfederal funds a week and adult correctional institutions must provide 15 hours of instruction a week.
The Title I, Part D, Subpart 2 program serves districts with high numbers or percentages of children and youth in locally operated juvenile correctional facilities, including jails, detention centers, residential care facilities, and facilities involved in community day programs.
