WELCOME TO THE IATDP
A Message from the President
It is my pleasure and honor to welcome you all to the IATDP.
From our lifetime members to our newest members, thanks for being a part of a great organization.
The mission of the IATDP is to create a partnership that fosters a joint effort in sharing information, best practices and research that address the many issues surrounding at-risk students electing to drop out of school. That’s why we aim to increase the graduation rate.
Truancy today is a global problem that communities are besieged with daily. It has many facets such as bullying, depression, mental illness, substance abuse, victims of domestic violence, and human trafficking just to name a few. All lead to missing school. So more work is needed.
As President of the International Association for Truancy & Dropout Prevention, and on behalf of the leadership team, I would like to invite all to share this social responsibility we have and to embrace the process of eradicating it. It’s imperative that we connect and collaborate resources and services that support the cause.
I look forward to communicating with you and sharing ideas and ways to keep students in school.
