National Dropout Prevention Center for Students with Disabilities
The National Dropout Prevention Center for Students with Disabilities would like to invite applications for States to work intensively with our Center. We hope that this second Request for Applications will accommodate those States that expressed a desire to work with NDPC-SD when we released the first RFA, but were unable to do so because to their particular circumstances at that time.
Please see the related documents (below) and note that applications are due on June 30, 2011. We look forward to receiving your applications. We hope you will not hesitate to contact Sandra Covington-Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or 864-656-1817 if you have questions.
Center for Technology Implementation
The U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs, funds the Center for Technology Implementation’s PowerUp What Works-Reading initiative. This online resource is designed to improve teaching and learning for students with disabilities and their classmates using evidence-based and technology-enhanced practices.
District and school partners are needed to field test PowerUp What Works-Reading in elementary schools. Selected partner schools will receive ongoing support throughout the technology implementation process along with a financial award.
If your school would like to become a field test partner, please complete and submit the attached application by July 8, 2011. The application and additional information about PowerUp What Works-Reading can be found at www.PowerUpWhatWorks.org. If you have any questions, contact Cynthia Overton at email@example.com or 202-403-5058.
