ADMINISTRATIVE

TO:

Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Jo Lynne DeMary

Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

2003 Title I Count of Children Who Are Neglected or Delinquent (N or D)

 

 

Attached are instructions and a report form to be used to complete the Title I count of children deemed neglected or delinquent in your school division. This annual report provides the U.S. Department of Education with current information on the location and number of children who live in local institutions for neglected or delinquent children or who are in local adult correctional facilities. The information will be used by the U.S. Department of Education to calculate the 2004-2005 allocations for programs that serve neglected or delinquent children. The information collected locally should not include neglected or delinquent children enrolled in state-operated institutions and programs.

 

Report your neglected or delinquent count based on your October 2003 caseload. This count must reflect the following:

 

                     the number of children, ages 5-17, inclusive, who live in (1) local institutions for neglected children, (2) local institutions for delinquent children, and (3) local adult correctional institutions; and

 

                     children who resided in an eligible institution for at least 30 consecutive days, at least one of which was in October 2003.

 

Attachment A includes instructions and definitions. Attachment B is the report form that will be returned to the Department of Education. The report form may be adapted and used to collect data from each eligible school, institution, or program in the school division. Aggregate the data from the individual reports to show the total number of neglected or delinquent children and youth for the school division.

 

Please submit the report form by fax to Diane Jay, specialist, Office of Program Administration and Accountability at (804) 371-7347 no later than Friday, December 5, 2003. If you have questions, please contact Ms. Jay by e-mail at djay@mail.vak12ed.edu, or by phone at (804) 225-2095.
