The three-part goal of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act’s (ESEA) Title I, Part D, Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent, or At-Risk, is to:
• Improve educational services for children and youth who are neglected or delinquent so that they have the opportunity to meet challenging state academic content and achievement standards.
• Provide neglected or delinquent children and youth with services so that they can successfully transition from institutionalization to further schooling or employment.
• Prevent youth from dropping out of school and provide youth who have dropped out and youth returning from correctional facilities with a support system to ensure their continued education.
