Local Agency Programs
The U.S. Department of Education (ED) allocates funds for this Subpart to the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) based on annual caseload data of the number of children and youth living in local institutions for delinquent children. KDE then awards subgrants to eligible local educational agencies (LEAs) or school districts.
Although requirements differ for state Subpart 1 and local Subpart 2 programs, all agencies that receive Part D funds are required to:
Meet the educational needs of the neglected or delinquent children and youth and assist in the transition of these students from correctional facilities to locally operated programs.
Ensure that these students have the same opportunities to achieve as students in regular schools.
Evaluate the programs and disaggregate data on participation by gender, race, ethnicity and age.
Use evaluation data to plan and improve subsequent programs for participating children and youth.
