Neglected or Delinquent - CalEdFacts

These programs provide educational and transitional services to neglected, delinquent, and at-risk children and youths who reside in 24-hour facilities and institutions. The delinquent population is connected to the juvenile justice system and resides in juvenile halls, group homes, and adult correctional institutions. The neglected population is made up of children and youths who have been placed in group homes or shelters due to abandonment, neglect, or death of their parents or guardians. Funds are provided to state and local educational agencies to ensure that neglected and delinquent children and youths meet the same standards that are required of all students in the state. Additionally, transitional programs provide support for students to make the transition from institutionalization to further schooling or employment.
