TITLE I, PART D – NEGLECTED & DELINQUENT
The Title I, Part D program (also called The Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent or At-Risk) was most recently reauthorized under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), as amended in 2015.
Under the reauthorized and improved law, states receiving Title 1, Part D funding for prevention and intervention programs for children and youth who are neglected, delinquent or at risk, have three broad goals:
- Improve educational services in local, tribal, or State institutions for neglected and delinquent children and youth in order to provide opportunity to meet State academic standards
- Improve youth transition from institutionalization to further schooling or employment
- Prevent dropout of youth, and provide young people returning from correctional facilities or institutions for neglected and delinquent children and youth with reentry support to ensure their continued education and involvement of their families and communities.
