NDPC Services Testimonials

Just as no two students are alike, no two schools or districts are alike either. There truly is no one size fits all for dropout prevention. The National Dropout Prevention Center offers a Program Assessment Review (PAR) and a Diploma Planning Institute (DPI) to assist schools and districts in determining the dropout prevention strategies that work best for them—and their students.

Access the schools’ and districts’ full success stories below.

Thomas Wilson and Anderson School District 5, Anderson, SC

A Program Assessment Review (PAR) between the National Dropout Prevention Center and Anderson School District 5 helped effectively evaluate district policies. The PAR process provided the district with resources and opportunities to evaluate areas of success as well as identify continued challenges.
