Overview

The purpose of this survey is to provide the U.S. Department of Education and the New York State Education Department with current information on the location and number of children living in institutions for neglected or delinquent children or in correctional institutions. The information will be used to compute the 2011-2012 Title I, Part D Neglected or Delinquent allocations for school districts so that eligible children in the institutions can be provided Title I-funded educational services. 

Institutions must complete this survey in order for their eligible children to receive Title I, Part D, funded educational services during the 2011-2012 school year.

Due Date:  December 3, 2010

Please review the information and submission instructions below before completing the survey.  Clicking on the survey's submit buttons constitutes acceptance and agreement that, to the best of your knowledge, the information being submitted is complete and accurate. 

Submission Instructions

After reading the information on this page, select one of the forms at a time (below) and enter the data for your facility. 

The forms are in five categories and an Annual Count Verification Form:

  1. Residential Sites of Institutions for Neglected Children
  2. Residential Sites of Institutions for Delinquent Children
  3. Residential Sites of Institutions Closed Since October 2009
  4. Residential Sites with No Eligible Children
  5. For State Agencies
  6. Annual Count Verification Form excel document icon (39.5KB)

Each institution should submit one form for each applicable category, as well as an Annual Count Verification Form for each facility reporting.  The category of an institution should not change from year to year unless there has been an official change in the purpose for which the institution is operated.  For example, if an institution is operated for the care of neglected children, but the majority of the children residing in the institution during October are children adjudicated to be delinquent, the institution should still be reported as an institution for neglected children until its charter or purpose is officially changed.

Agency/Institutions with multiple sites must submit one form from the main site. This single form will include information for all site locations. The Annual Count Verification Form must be submitted for each facility reporting.

Institution for Neglected Children - A public or private residential facility (other than a foster home) that is operated primarily for the care of children who have been committed to the institution, or voluntarily placed in the institution under applicable State law, because of the abandonment by, or neglect by, or death of parents.

Neglected Child Count -  A 30 consecutive day time frame must be chosen, with at least one of the days in the period of time being in the month of October, 2010. Count the total number of children aged 5-17 residing in an institution in which the majority of the children are"neglected".   Counts should reflect CASELOAD data for the 30-day timeframe that is chosen.  Note: A resident could be at the facility for only one day during the selected time frame and need not be in the facility for all 30 days.

Institution for Delinquent Children - A public or private residential facility that is operated primarily for the care of children who have been adjudicated delinquent or persons in need of supervision. The term also includes an adult correctional institution (county jail) in which youth reside.

Delinquent Child Count - A 30 consecutive day time frame must be chosen, with at least one of the days in the period of time being in the month of October, 2010. Count the total number of children aged 5-17 residing in an institution in which the majority of the children are "delinquent". Counts should reflect CASELOAD data for the 30-day timeframe that is chosen.
Note: A resident could be at the facility for only one day during the selected time frame and need not be in the facility for all 30 days.

Residential Facility - is one in which children are under 24-hour care. Children attending at a day program at the facility cannot be counted for this report.
