Title I, Part D, Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent, or At-Risk can be found in Section 1401 of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). ​
​It is the purpose of this part - 
  1. to improve educational services for children and youth in local, tribal, and state institutions for neglected or delinquent children and youth so that such children and youth have the opportunity to meet challenging state academic standards that all children in the state are expected to meet;
  2. to provide such children and youth with the services needed to make a successful transition from institutionalization to further schooling or employment; and
  3. to prevent at-risk youth from dropping out of school, and to provide dropouts, and children and youth returning from correctional facilities or institutions for neglected or delinquent children and youth, with a support system to ensure their continued education and the involvement of their families and communities.
Title I, Part D serves children through two separate programs, State Agency Programs (Subpart 1) and Local Agency Programs (Subpart 2).

2018-2019 Monitoring
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act requires the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction (NDDPI) to monitor the implementation of program requirements and the expenditure of federal funds. Each State Agency (SA) and Local Education Agency (LEA) subgrantee receiving funding for Neglect and Delinquent programs is required by law to participate in the compliance monitoring process administered by the NDDPI. LEAs/SAs must maintain documentary evidence to verify full compliance with all state and federal program requirements.
