NDTAC's Fast Facts Web pages present national and State longitudinal data on funding, program types, and student demographics for children and youth who are neglected, delinquent or at-risk and enrolled in Title I, Part D, Subpart 1 and Subpart 2 programs. For State data on academic and vocational outcomes and pre-posttest assessment results, visit eddataexpress.ed.gov.
ARKANSAS: SUBPART 1
II. Program Types
States may use Subpart 1 funds to assist educational programs for youth who are neglected and programs for youth in juvenile detention, juvenile corrections, and adult corrections facilities.
Programs for youth who are neglected serve youth placed in public or private residential facilities due to abandonment, neglect, or the death of their parents or guardians. Programs for youth who are delinquent serve youth in public or private institutions (e.g., detention or corrections facilities) who have been adjudicated delinquent or who are otherwise in need of supervision.

III. Students Served
All State education agencies must provide data to the U.S. Department of Education (ED) on the students served in Part D programs, including information on gender, race/ethnicity, age, and disability and Limited English Proficiency (LEP) status.
Nationally, in school year (SY) 2016–17, the majority (69 percent) of students benefitting from Title I, Part D funds in State agency programs were between the ages of 14 and 18, followed by 19–21–year–olds (28 percent), and students under the age of 14 (4 percent). Students were predominantly male (86 percent). These percentages reflect the national trends in age and gender also observed in SY 2014–15 and 2015–16. The racial/ethnic makeup of students in Title I, Part D, Subpart 1 in SY 2016–17 across the nation and in Arkansas is presented below.
|American Indian or Alaska Native||0||0%||0||0%||0||0%||1,936||2%||1,709||2%||1,094||2%|
|Black or African American||409||56%||289||50%||303||56%||35,550||45%||30,596||43%||31,001||46%|
|Hispanic or Latino||29||4%||23||4%||13||2%||13,064||17%||12,697||18%||11,624||17%|
|Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander||0||0%||2||0%||0||0%||408||1%||268||0%||316||0%|
|Two or More Races||12||2%||17||3%||8||1%||1,611||2%||2,013||3%||2,032||3%|
States may not have provided racial/ethnic data for every student. Therefore, the number of students by race/ethnicity may be lower than the number of students served. Due to rounding, percentages may not total to 100%.
As of SY 2012–13, States began reporting data on the number of students with disabilities and the number of students who have LEP. The identification of these students should align with the State classification for Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) for students with disabilities and with Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act for students who have LEP.
Student Subgroup Data

|Students with Disabilities||95||13%||109||19%||182||34%||23,331||30%||21,680||31%||21,957||33%|
State NotesIn SY 2014–15 and 2016–17, Arkansas indicated laws, policies, and/or procedures prohibited some facilities from tracking students after they exit.
Definitions and Presentation of DataAdult corrections: An adult corrections institution is a facility in which persons, including youth under 21 years of age, are confined as a result of conviction for a criminal offense.
Age-eligible: This term refers to the age range of students who could reasonably be expected to achieve a given outcome. For example, the age-eligible range for earning a high school diploma or GED is 16- to 21-years old. ED uses ranges for each outcome intended to capture the majority of students served across the country, but eligibility ranges may vary from State to State.
Juvenile detention: A juvenile detention facility is a shorter term institution that provides care to children who require secure custody pending court adjudication, court disposition, or execution of a court order, or that provides care to children after commitment.
Juvenile corrections: A juvenile corrections institution is a public or private residential facility, other than a foster home, for children and youth who are delinquent. This type of facility offers care for children and youth who have been adjudicated delinquent or are in need of supervision.
Neglected programs: Neglected programs offer care to children and youth who are neglected. These programs are conducted in public or private residential facilities, other than a foster home, that are operated primarily for the care of children who have been committed to the institution or voluntarily placed there under applicable State law due to abandonment, neglect, or death of their parents or guardians.
