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

The Neglected and Delinquent Program under Part D of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as reauthorized by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) 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. The programs may also help neglected children and youth or at risk of dropping out of school.

The goals of Title I, Part D, are to:

  • Improve educational services for these children so they can meet challenging state academic content and achievement standards,
  • Provide services to transition students between facilities and districts successfully, and
  • Prevent at-risk youth from dropping out of school, and provide dropouts and children and youth returning from correctional facilities with a support system to ensure their continued education.

School systems and state agencies in Georgia (the Department of Juvenile Justice, the Department of Corrections, and the Department of Human Resources) serve neglected and/or delinquent youths in institutions operated or contracted by these agencies. The Georgia Department of Education provides resources to school systems and state agencies to carry out the purposes of Title I, Part D based upon the submission of the district’s Comprehensive LEA Improvement Plan (CLIP) and District Improvement Plan (DIP).
