Subpart I - State Agency Programs
Title I, Part D, Subpart I — State Agency Programs
agencies that operate educational programs for children and youth in
institutions or community programs for neglected or delinquent children and
youth in adult correctional facilities.
State agency eligibility
A state agency is eligible for assistance under this subpart if the
agency is responsible for providing free public education for children in
facilities for neglected or delinquent children, community day programs,
or adult correctional facilities.
To be eligible to participate in state agency programs, students must be youth under age 21, entitled to a free public education not above the twelfth grade and enrolled in a regular program of instruction at an eligible institution or community day program for twenty hours per week or fifteen hours per week in an adult correctional facility.
Regular Program of Instruction
A regular program of instruction is an educational program (not beyond
grade 12) in an institution or a community day program for neglected or
delinquent children that consists of classroom instruction in basic school
subjects such as reading, mathematics, and vocationally oriented subjects,
and is supported by non-federal funds. Neither the manufacture of goods
within the institution or community day program nor activities related to
institutional maintenance are considered classroom instruction.
