ADMINISTRATIVE

TO:

Division Superintendents

FROM:

Jo Lynne DeMary
Superintendent of Public Instruction

SUBJECT:

2005 Title I, Part D, Subpart 2, 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, Part D, Subpart 2, count of children deemed neglected or delinquent in your school divisions.  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 2005-2006 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 2005 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 2005.

Attachment A includes instructions and definitions.  Attachment B is the report form that school divisions will return to the Department of Education.  The report form may be adapted as needed in order to collect data from each eligible school, institution, or program in the school division.  Before returning the report to the department, please aggregate the data from the individual reports.  The final report should indicate the total number of neglected or delinquent children and youth for the school division (Section A) and the source data for this total (Section B). 

Please submit the report form by fax to Dr. Philip Iovino, Title I specialist, Office of Program Administration and Accountability at (804) 371-7347 on or before Friday, December 2, 2005.  If you have questions, please contact Dr. Iovino by e-mail at Philip.Iovino@doe.virginia.gov, or by phone at (804) 371-2934.
