Research Assistant Professor Dr. Richard Briscoe to serve on the National Dropout Prevention Center for Students with Disabilities Advisory Committee
Research Assistant Professor Dr. Richard Briscoe has been invited to serve on the advisory committee of the National Dropout Prevention Center for Students with Disabilities (NDPC-SD). As one of the U.S. Department of Education/Office of Special Education Programs' (OSEP's) specialty technical assistance centers, NDPC-SD's mission is to support states and local agencies in their effort to develop and disseminate strategies and interventions that will increase graduation, decrease dropout and increase recovery/reentry among their students with disabilities.
OSEP mandates that an advisory panel be composed of members from special and general education practice and administration at state and local levels and key stakeholder groups, including parents/student advocates, and researchers. The goal of the Advisory Committee is to advise and offer guidance to NDPC-SD on substantive issues, activities, and plans in assuring the appropriateness of project services to meet the needs of intended recipients and beneficiaries.
“We would value your experience and input in our work to support states in their efforts to provide the best possible educational experience for their youth with disabilities,” said Dr. Loujeania Eilliams Bost, NDPC-SD Director.
The first advisory committee meeting will be held March 28-29, 2012 in Baltimore, MD.
