Neglected and Delinquent Programs

Title I, Part D: Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent or At Risk (N or D)

The goals of Title I Part D (TIPD) are to:

  • Improve educational services for children and youth who are N or D so that they have the opportunity to meet the same challenging state academic standards that all children in the state are expected to meet;
  • Provide youth who are N or D with services so that they can successfully transition from institutionalization to further education or employment; and
  • Prevent at-risk youth from dropping out of school and provide youth who have dropped out and youth returning from correctional facilities or N or D institutions with a support system to ensure continued education and the involvement of their families and communities.1

Subpart 1 funds are allocated by formula from the U.S. Department of Education (ED) to the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE).  NJDOE makes subgrants to the New Jersey Juvenile Justice Commission, Department of Corrections and Department of Children and Families.

Subpart 2 requires NJDOE to reserve, from its Title I allocation, funds generated by the annual caseload data of the number of children and youth living in local facilities for delinquent children and county correctional facilities.  The NJDOE awards the funds to the local education agencies that are associated with the locally run correctional facility.

In addition to the TIPD goals, the facilities receiving funds must annually evaluate their program participation and use the data to plan and improve programming.
