Title I, Part D, Subparts 1 and 2 establish Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent, or At Risk. This law provides supplemental funding to state and local education agencies as a part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2011 (NCLB).
These funds are dedicated to improving educational services to children in facilities for the neglected or delinquent. The goal is to enable program recipients to meet the same student performance standards that all children in the state are expected to meet. Improved academic performance will facilitate the transition of students from correctional programs to further education or employment. The Division of Federal and State Education Policy at TEA administers two formula programs under this law.
