Title I, Part D — Education Money for Delinquents

What the heck is Title I, Part D, Subpart 1, money?  Clearly, it has to be a government program to have a name such as this.  Most have heard of No Child Left Behind, and this money is part of that program.  The State Agency Neglected and Delinquent program “provides [federal] formula grants to [state educational agencies] to help provide education continuity for children and youths in state-run institutions for juveniles and in adult correctional institutions so that these youth can make successful transitions to school or employment once they are released.”  Subpart 2 provides money to locally operated institutions for delinquent youths (such as detention centers).

Projects can support supplemental instruction in core subject areas, such as reading and math, plus may include tutoring, counseling, and transition services.

Budget information for Indiana is available here.  In 2012, Indiana received $585,049, and is estimated to receive $544,027 for 2013.

The National Evaluation and Technical Assistance Center for the Education of Children and Youth who are Neglected, Delinquent, or At-Risk offers resources and assistance to state coordinators for the funds.

No data was readily available about which Indiana facilities received funds, or exactly how the funds were used.  An overview of the Indiana spending and outcomes for the 2010-11 school year is available here.
