Technical Assistance and Dissemination Network

NDPC-SD collaborates with other members of OSEP’s Technical Assistance and Dissemination Network to share resources in support our efforts to build state capacity.

Among these other collaborations, NDPC-SD works with the PACER Center and PTIs. This resulted in the December 2006  teleseminar, which focused on partnerships between educators and parents. Additionally, this collaboration resulted in the development of a parent brief that discusses the reasons youth drop out as well as promising approaches for parents to employ in keeping their children in school.

  • Parent Brief  "The Role of Parents in Dropout Prevention: Strategies that Promote Graduation and School Achievement."  This publication is a collaborative effort of the National Center on Secondary Education and Transition (NCSET) and PACER Center.
