Title I, Part D, Subpart I- State Agency

State agency programs (Subpart 1): state-operated juvenile and adult correctional institutions must have state-funded education programs in which students are enrolled 15 hours a week to be eligible to receive funding for Title I, Part D, supplementary programs.  These educations may come in the form of transition supports, dropout prevention programs, health and social services, specialized trainings and career services, mentoring, etc. in state-operated institutions.

All agencies that receive Part D funds are required to:

1.Meet the educational needs of children and youth who are N or D and assist in the transition of these students from residential facilities to community-based programs;

2.Ensure that these students have the same opportunities to achieve as students in regular community schools;

3.Annually evaluate the program and disaggregate data on participation by gender, race, ethnicity, and age; and use evaluation data to plan and improve subsequent programs for participating children and youth

Annual Count of Eligible Student

   Both Subpart 1 & Subpart 2 programs must complete an annual count of eligible students. The annual counts submitted fund programs in the following year.

The U.S. Department of Education (ED) allocates funds for this subpart to the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) based on the number of children and youth in State-operated facilities and the State’s average per-pupil educational expenditures.  The annual count data is collected by the State Agency (SA) in October and submitted to CDE in December via the State Agency Tan Form.  Once ED determines a State’s Subpart 1 allocation, CDE makes subgrants to eligible SA participants based on its proportionate share of the State’s adjusted enrollment count of children and youth who are Part D-eligible.  The allocations for Title ID, Subpart 2 are posted annually on the grants fiscal website.
