Updates from NDTAC

  • Upcoming Topical Call
    • Call Description –
      • NDTAC’s topical calls offer a forum for state Title I, Part D (Part D) coordinators and their state educational agency, subgrantees, and facility colleagues to learn and discuss challenges, questions, strategies, resources, and successes on a particular topic of interest related to students who are considered neglected or delinquent. This year’s topical call series is focused on innovative uses of funds that address prevalent needs. Call #3 of this year’s series will focus on the provision of the transition services needed to assist students in successfully transitioning from out of home placement (i.e., juvenile corrections, juvenile detention, residential facilities, residential treatment, etc.) to further schooling or employment. This call will include a brief overview of the definition and elements of the transition process; effective transition practices; and facility, youth, family, and community/system-centered activities at each stage from entry into the juvenile justice system to aftercare. Further, during this call, Title I, Part D Specialist Murray Meszaros will share how public educational services are funded in Utah for youth who are in state custody or state care and describe the rationale for and statutory waiver process completed allowing Utah to allocate up to 100% of the Title I, Part D funding to transition-related services.  Finally, three of Utah’s Education Transition and Career Advocates (ETCA) will describe their role in providing education transition and career advocacy services to youth in state custody or care.

Emerging Topics in the Teal Community

  • Identifying Eligible Facilities and Programs
  • What are examples of the different types of facilities that align with Title I, Part D. Subpart 3. Definitions?



  • The ask – clear definitions of the different facility types and examples of facilities that align with the definitions.
    • For example, Adult Correctional Institution –
      • Subpart 1– state prison, private prison, correctional reentry center
      • Subpart 2 – county run jail, contracted jail facility


  • Strategies for Identifying Eligible Agencies/LEAs
    • Connect with Your Designated State Agency

As part of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 2002 and the Juvenile Justice Reform Act of 2018, all states who participate in the Title II Formula Grants Program must identify a Designated State Agency (DSA).

Each DSA has staff who administer the Title II Formula Grants Program. Staff members may include:

  • Coordination and Collaboration between SEAs and DSAs
  • Explore Opportunities to Serve on SAGs, Committees, and/or Workgroups
  • Invite DSA Personnel to Serve on SEA Boards, Committees, and/or Workgroups
  • Work with DSA to Determine Information Needed for Juvenile Crime Analysis
  • Work with DSA to Learn Facilities Included in Monitoring Universe and Facilities’ Eligibility for the Title I, Part D Program
  • Work with DSA to Coordinate and Maximize Utilization of EBPs
  • Encourage Part D Subgrantees to Coordinate with Juvenile Delinquency Agencies, Organizations, and Other Related Programs and Utilize EBPs
  • Learn about Program Areas State/Territory Has Identified in its 3-Year Plan
  • Inquire about Request for Proposal Process and Share Information with Part D Subgrantees
  • Learn about and Share Reentry Planning Requirements with Part D Subgrantees and Determine Opportunities to Collaborate with Justice Agencies to Engage in Joint Planning
  • Determine Ways to Collaborate with DSA to Ensure Timely Transfer of Records, Transfer of Credits, and Receipt of Partial or Full Credit
  • Additionally, two draft documents were reviewed by attendees and feedback was provided on whether the documents and strategies listed would be helpful to coordinators. Attendees stated that the documents and strategies would in fact be helpful.
  • Developing Subgrantee Applications to Address Priority Areas within Your State
    • A recurring question from coordinators centers on how Title I, Part D Subgrants are made within the states and territories. Coordinators are curious if anyone is using a discretionary grant process as opposed to the formula-based process.
      • All in attendance stated that they used a formula-based process for providing Subpart 2 funding.
