Innovation Partners’ Missions Support and Enhance National Dropout Prevention Center’s Work
Anderson, SC—(August 9, 2018)—The National Dropout Prevention Center announces Achieve3000, a provider of online education-related professional learning experiences, as its latest Innovation Partner. Innovation Partners are businesses, individuals or companies whose dedication in advancing efforts to reduce dropout rates nationwide align closely with the mission of the National Dropout Prevention Center (NDPC).
“Combating high school dropout rates is critical and efforts require collaboration among all stakeholders in the education system, including schools, parents, communities, legislators, and practitioners,” said Sandy Addis, Director of the National Dropout Prevention Center. “Innovation Partners share our determination to increase graduation rates through increasing awareness and opportunities for all students. We are excited that Achieve3000 has joined us in achieving our mission.”
Headquartered in Lakewood, NJ, Achieve3000 developed and utilizes an advanced online model of differentiated instruction for grades PreK-12 and adult education to meet instructional needs to ensure students master the literacy skills required for success in school and beyond. The company has created the only literacy platform that uses a patented instructional model to improve literacy across the content areas and drive college and career readiness.
“Achieve3000 has a 17-year track record of significantly accelerating students’ literacy gains and dramatically increasing college and career readiness,” noted Stuart Udell, CEO of Achieve3000. “Literacy growth is instrumental in preventing students from disengaging in their education process, which often leads them to drop out. We are deeply committed to the work of the National Dropout Prevention Center’s work to help students stay in school and graduate.”
The mission of the NDPC is to provide teachers, counselors, administrators, and school districts with effective, research-based solutions to help eliminate dropout, including identification and support of at-risk students. As an Innovation Partner, Achieve3000 allows NDPC to increases its capacity to provide stakeholders with access to information regarding dropout prevention, intervention and recovery resources, research and best practices.
Achieve3000 joins the National Dropout Prevention Center’s other Innovation Partners DeeperDive Learning, Scholastic and WIN Learning.
