This Week's Topic

Learn how the 15 Effective Strategies implemented collectively work together to enable all students attain school success. As we celebrate 25 years of the National Dropout Prevention Center, we will look at the 15 Effective Strategies that form a framework not only for good dropout prevention, but also for our Solutions programs. Over the years, the NDPC has identified 15 Strategies that research and best practice have shown to have impact on dropout prevention. When planning school improvement, a knowledge of the Effective Strategies can guide schools and districts to successful dropout prevention. In this special program, you will hear from Network members from across the country with expertise with specific strategies.
