Title I, Part D
The Title I, Part D, program (also called The Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent or At Risk) was most recently reauthorized under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended in 2001. The Title I, Part D, Subpart 1 State agency N or D program was first authorized with P.L. 89-750, the Elementary and Secondary Amendments of 1966. The Title I, Part D, Subpart 2 local educational agency program came into being in its present form with the Improving America Schools Act of 1994.
Title I, Part D, is administered by the Office of Safe and Healthy Students (OSHS), under the federal Department of Education, Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE). Earl Myers is the Federal Program Manager for the Title I, Part D, Neglected, Delinquent or At-Risk Program.
The goals of Title I, Part D, are to
- Improve educational services for these children so they have the opportunity to meet challenging State academic content and achievement standards;
- Provide them with services to successfully transition from institutionalization to further schooling or employment; and
- Prevent youth who are at-risk from dropping out of school, and to provide dropouts and children and youth returning from correctional facilities with a support system to ensure their continued education.
