Important Announcement: Congratulations to Jessica DeLallofor her recent appointment as Title I Director for the Nevada Department of Education! In the interim, David Asato and Reginald Grisham will be serving as the points of contact for Title I, Part D until a Part D Coordinator is retained.
Title I, Part D is a federal program that provides funding to states and local education agencies (LEAs) to improve educational services for children and youth who are neglected, delinquent, or at-risk. The program aims to improve academic achievement and reduce the likelihood of these children and youth becoming involved in the juvenile justice system.
To support LEAs in implementing effective programs and strategies for neglected, delinquent, and at-risk students, the National Technical Assistance Center for the Education of Neglected or Delinquent Children and Youth (NDTAC) was established. NDTAC is a federally funded technical assistance center that provides support to states and LEAs in implementing Title I Part D programs and meeting the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
One of the ways in which NDTAC supports LEAs is through its annual conference. This year, the NDTAC Conference is scheduled to take place from May 15th to May 17th. The conference is a gathering of educators, administrators, researchers, and policymakers from across the country who are committed to improving educational outcomes for neglected, delinquent, and at-risk students.
The NDTAC Conference provides a forum for participants to share information, learn about effective practices, and network with colleagues. The conference features keynote speakers, breakout sessions, and workshops that cover a wide range of topics related to the education of neglected, delinquent, and at-risk students. These topics may include strategies for improving academic achievement, promoting positive behavior, providing social-emotional support, and ensuring successful reentry into the community.
In addition to providing valuable information and professional development opportunities, the NDTAC Conference also serves as a platform for participants to engage in meaningful discussions about the challenges and opportunities facing neglected, delinquent, and at-risk students. By bringing together experts from diverse fields and perspectives, the conference fosters a collaborative and innovative approach to improving educational services and outcomes for these students.
Overall, Title I, Part D and the NDTAC Conference play critical roles in improving the lives and futures of neglected, delinquent, and at-risk students. By providing funding, technical assistance, and professional development, these programs help ensure that these students have access to high-quality educational services that meet their unique needs and support their success both in and out of school.
