Title I, Neglected or Delinquent


Funding Description

Title I, Part D, Neglected or Delinquent (N or D) is a federal categorical program contained in the Consolidated Application. Its purpose is to provide supplementary educational services to improve academic achievement (specifically in mathematics, reading, and language arts) for children and youth in local and state facilities and in institutions for neglected and delinquent children. These children or youth must be given the opportunity to meet the same challenging state content standards expected of all other children in the state. In addition, N or D is designed to provide neglected and delinquent children and youth the services needed to make successful transitions from institutionalization to a regular program of education, higher education, vocational training, or employment. Services for neglected students are funded through Title 1, Part A, and are provided as extended-day services to children and youth who are wards of the court and reside in group homes and county shelters.

Eligibility

Eligible Applicants Local educational agencies, other organizations or agencies
Required Eligibility Criteria Neglected and delinquent students must reside in 24-hour facilities and institutions where the average length of stay is at least 30 days. Students served by local educational agencies (LEAs) must also be enrolled in a regular program of instruction (not beyond grade twelve) that consists of core curriculum subjects not supported by federal funds. Students in state-operated correctional institutions must be enrolled in 20 hours per week of core curriculum instruction in juvenile institutions and 15 hours per week in adult institutions.
Other Eligibility Considerations Eligible recipients include state correctional agencies and LEAs, i.e. school districts, county offices of education, and direct-funded charter schools. LEAs serve students from age five to graduation; state agencies serve students up to age twenty-one. Students in the N or D program are considered highly mobile. Therefore, a snapshot count is taken to determine the amount of funding state correctional agencies and LEAs will be allocated for providing services to students at the various sites. The count is taken of the number of students residing in facilities for 30 consecutive days with at least one of those days having to be in the month of October. The count is sent to the California Department of Education and forwarded to the U.S. Department of Education in order to receive funding for the program.
Eligible Grade Level(s) K, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
