Title I, Part D - Neglected & Delinquent

Neglected and Delinquent (N&D) Education Programs

The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1964 (ESEA), reauthorized by the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA); Title I, Part D: Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth who are Neglected, Delinquent, or At-Risk legislation defines and funds education programming that supports services in State and local N&D institutions.  In Michigan, State agencies and local school districts are awarded Federal grants to provide services and supports to ensure that children and youth in eligible N&D institutions have the opportunity to meet the same challenging State academic content and achievement standards that all children in the State are expected to meet.  In addition, the funding is utilized to provide services needed to successfully transition students between the N&D facilities and further education or employment.

In Michigan, the Federal N&D funds are awarded to State agencies and local districts, including local education agencies, strict discipline academies, and intermediate school districts, for services directed toward eligible N&D institutions based on the Annual Count Survey of Children and Youth in Institutions for Neglected and Delinquent Youth and the completion of the Application for Funding and Formal Agreement.  While utilizing a continuous improvement process, district and facility leadership must collaborate in program planning and implementation to meet the academic and whole child needs.
