Title I - Part D, Neglected & Delinquent

The Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent, or At-Risk

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 allows states to award Title I, Part D funds to local school districts to provide programs that serve children and youth who are in locally operated correctional facilities or who are attending community day programs for delinquent children and youth. Additionally, the programs may provide assistance to children and youth who are neglected or at-risk of dropping out of school.

The following are the purposes of Title I, Part D:
- To improve educational services for children and youth in local and state institutions for neglected or delinquent children and youth so that 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, and 
- 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.
