This Week's Topic

The National Dropout Prevention Center and Network are entering a new era! Even as we have been celebrating our 25 anniversary, we were also planning for the future.

Join us as we introduce to you our new National Dropout Prevention Center director, Dr. Beth Reynolds, as well as our new NDPC Fellows; our early ideas for practitioner Fellows from the Network; our new online international journal, ENGAGE; and various professional development opportunities.

Plan to listen and call in with your questions and topics of interest! Your co-hosts, Sam Drew and Marty Duckenfield, will be talking about these future plans, which we hope will engage all of you in the important work of the National Dropout Prevention Center and Network in the years ahead.
