Neglected/Delinquent (Title I, Part A and D)

Title I, Part A and Part D funds are reserved for prevention and intervention programs for youth who are neglected, unaccompanied, and/or at-risk. Upon identification, funding provides services for supplemental academic support services such as tutoring.

Neglected students may be temporarily or permanently removed from their parental home due to sustained​ maltreatment. These students reside in residential facilities. Supplemental academic support services are offered to these students via the education coordinators of the facilities.

Educational services are also funded by Title I through the Florida Department of Education to serve neglected and delinquent youth in residential and non-residential facilities. The Department of Juvenile Justice has a cooperative agreement with the District to provide daily academic instruction, remedial services, individual instruction and specific education plans for children and youth who are neglected, delinquent and/or at-risk.

Program Goals

The program goals are to:

  • Supplement educational services by providing neglected and delinquent youth with the same educational opportunities needed to meet challenging State academic content and achievement standards.
  • Provide these neglected and delinquent youth with services to successfully transition from institutionalization to the most appropriate education setting, zoned school or employment.
  • Prevent at-risk youth from dropping out of school, and to provide youth with case management support services to ensure their continued education.
