May 22-24, 2018
American Institutes for Research
The 2018 U.S. Department of Education (ED), Office of Safe and Healthy Students (OSHS), Title I, Part D Coordinators National Conference, Navigating Title I, Part D Administration: Charting Your Course, will be held at the American Institutes for Research (AIR) in Washington, D.C. May 22-24, 2018.
It is our pleasure to bring together State Part D coordinators, experts from the field, and staff from ED and NDTAC. Our keynote session will focus on a new tool released recently by the Juvenile Law Center of Philadelphia and the American Bar Association (ABA). Kate Burdick, Nadia Mozaffar, and Kathleen McNaught will lead the session for their organizations, along with two young adults: Bruce Morgan and Marcus Jarvis. The session is titled “Blueprint for Change: Education Success for Youth in the Juvenile Justice System.”
The plenary on day two of the conference will be led by Macon Stewart from the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform at Georgetown University. The session will focus on the needs of youth who are considered “crossover” youth, who are discussed for the first time in Part D regulations found in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Multiple panels will be led by Part D Federal Program Officers (FPOs) and fellow coordinators, ranging from the topics of achieving Part D outcomes, building subgrantees’ capacity to administer Part D, subgrantee monitoring, and State plans.
During the final day of the conference, ED legal staff will be present to answer questions that coordinators have submitted to ED and NDTAC referencing ESSA and Part D. Later that morning, we will meet in our ND Communities for a working session, during which you will discuss different types of facilities and facility eligibility and how State education agencies (SEAs) and subgrantees can assess local facilities’ needs, effectively communicate about Part D to new facilities or facilities not currently funded by Part D, and help facilities apply for Part D funding.
Written responses to questions submitted prior to and during the conferece are available here: https://ndcommunities.ed.gov/written-responses-coordinator-questions. Additional questions and respones will be posted to that page as they are reviewed by the staff of ED, OSHS, and NDTAC.
