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.
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 further schooling 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.
