Purpose of N&D Program To improve educational services for children and youth in local and State institutions for neglected or delinquent children and youth so they have the opportunity to meet the same challenging State academic content and State student achievement standards that all children in the State are expected to meet. To provide these children with services to enable them to transition successfully from institutionalization to further schooling or employment. To prevent at-risk youth from dropping out of school as well as 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 A, Neglected LEAs who receive a Title I, Part A, Neglected allocation (project 518) do so because they indicated on the prior years October Count form that they have children/youth enrolled in their school who reside in a locally-operated neglected facility. These LEAs are required to use their Neglected funds to provide services to neglected children/youth that are comparable to the services they provide in Title I schools.
Title I, Part D, Delinquent While Title I, Part A, Neglected funds are to be used to provide Title I, Part A services only, for the children/youth from a neglected facility, Title I, Part D funds are divided into two different subparts and have a broader set of allowable uses of funds.
