The Use of Individualized Learning Plans to Help Students to be College and Career Ready
Web-based Event
No Location Specified
Preparing for college and careers requires more than mastering academic content.

Many states have adopted or are exploring policies that require the use of ILPs. The American Youth Policy Forum, the College and Career Readiness and Success Center at the American Institutes for Research, and the Center for Workforce Development at the Institute for Educational Leadership are co-hosting this webinar on the use of ILPs across the country.

Building Positive Relationships to Prevent Drop-Out and Other Negative Outcomes
Teleconference Call
No Location Specified
Transitioning into adulthood includes staying in school through graduation, avoiding teenage pregnancy, remaining drug and alcohol free, and obtaining linkages to postsecondary education, living, and employment. These tasks are accomplished through learning the social and academic skills needed to navigate life demands within and outside of school settings. For children and youth with disabilities, building positive relationships is integral in this process. This teleseminar from the National Dropout Prevention Center for Students with Disabilities will include specific examples of research-based strategies for enhancing students’ relationships with teachers and peers, strategies for fostering collaborative relationships with families, and will stress the importance of outreach to specific groups of students with disabilities who have very negative outcomes, including youth who are in foster care and those who are homeless.
