This annual report from the U.S. Department of Education presents performance data on programs for the education of children and youth who are neglected, delinquent, or at-risk.
Major findings in this report show that during the 2008-2009 school year, 498,264 students who were classified as neglected, delinquent, or at-risk were served by Title1, Part D programs; almost $187 million in supplemental education funding was provided to State education agencies for implementation of these programs; and juvenile detention and juvenile corrections agencies were the most common recipients of Title 1, Part D funds. The findings also show that students receiving support from these programs regularly show improvement in core academic subject areas, with more than 40 percent earning one or more high school credits, at least 7 percent earning a high school diploma, and nearly 30 percent returning to their local school districts upon completion of the program. This report presents summary information on 2008-2009 expenditures for Title 1, Part D programs of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The goals of Title 1, Part D, also known as the Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who are Neglected, Delinquent, or At-Risk, are to improve educational services for students who are neglected, delinquent, or at-risk; effect the successful transition of students from these programs back into their schools and communities; and prevent these youth from dropping out and provide them with support. The data for the report came from all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico for the 2008-2009 school year. The findings from this report suggest that Title 1, Part D programs are effective at facilitating States' efforts to comply with the law, and that the programs are effective at improving the educational outcomes of the targeted population.
