Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS) Data Collection Form is due!


News from the Division of Federal Program Compliance re: the Texas Education Agency

As described in the Application Guidelines to the 2012-2013 Special Consolidated Grant application, this message is to remind local educational agencies (LEAs) that the 2012-2013 Special Education SC5100—Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS) Data Collection Form is due to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 30, 2012.

The SC5100—Coordinated Early Intervening Services Data Collection Form must be submitted annually by LEAs to report the number of children who received coordinated early intervening services (CEIS) and who subsequently received special education and/or related services.

All LEAs (single-member districts and fiscal agents of shared services arrangement) that reserved CEIS funds during the 2009-2010, 2010-2011 and/or 2011-2012 school years must certify and submit this data by the deadline.

Drug and Alcohol Abuse Continues in Youth Released from Detention

Is this what you want for your youth?The Northwestern Juvenile Project*:

According to a recent study, substance use disorders are common five years after juveniles are released from detention.

Males are two to three times more likely to use alcohol and drugs compared with females, HealthDay reports. Researchers at Northwestern University in Chicago interviewed 1,200 males and more than 650 females, ages 10 to 18, who were being held at a juvenile detention center. They were interviewed again several times, up to five years later. More than 45 percent of males and almost 30 percent of females had psychiatric disorders. Alcohol and drug use were the most common and persistent psychiatric disorders, the study found.

While it has been known that psychiatric disorders are common among teenagers in detention, this is the first study to examine whether these disorders persisted in subsequent years, the researchers said.

“These findings demonstrate the need for special programs — especially for substance use disorders — not only while these kids are in corrections but also when they return to the community,” lead author Linda Teplin said in a news release. “People think these kids are locked up forever, but the average stay is only two weeks."

The good news is that while psychiatric disorders are prevalent among incarcerated juveniles, MOST juveniles eventually return to their communities, where they become the responsibility of the community mental health system. However, no large-scale study has examined psychiatric disorders after youth leave detention.

Linda Teplin has a suggestion to help these youth: "Obviously, it’s better to provide community services than to build correctional facilities. Otherwise, the lack of services perpetuates the revolving door between the community and corrections.”

As a community services organization, what have you done lately to help the youth in peril within your community? What programs do you have in place to help alleviate substance disorders and/or abuse in youth and teens?

Grants for Early Childhood Programs

childhoodgrantsNeed a grant for your out-of-school-time program?

Funding for early childhood programs has become a hot topic at virtually all levels of government.

And, even though there's considerable uncertainty over what November's elections will mean in terms of the 2013 federal budget, most -- if not all -- government agencies will still offer funding for a wide range of early childhood-related programs. Additionally, many excellent funding opportunities are being made available by private and corporate sources.

But with the competition for funding growing tighter, officials say it's the more-informed grantseekers who are likely to have an edge.

That's why we encourage you to seek assistance from a reputable company, when obtaining help for your grant writing needs. We at Grant Writing & Nonprofit Services can help you! Email or call Travis Belcher to find out about our grant writing and funding research services: 865.249.6311.
