Title I, Part D, also called The Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent or At Risk, provides Subpart 1 Title I funds to state educational agencies that operate educational programs for youth in adult correctional facilities and for children and youth in the Department of Youth Services.
The priorities of Title I Part D Subpart 1 are to assist state educational agencies in preparing children and youth for successful transition to education, training, or employment post-incarceration by achieving the program objectives and outcomes outlined on pages 110-111 of the ESSA State Plan.
A state agency providing corrections education to children and youth is eligible to receive funds based on criteria established by the United States Department of Education (USED). Eligible agencies in Massachusetts include 11 County Houses of Correction, the Department of Youth Services, and the Department of Corrections. Agencies provide a count of eligible students to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education on an annual basis that is then used to determine allocation amounts. Grants are then awarded to each agency after approval of the grant application.
