IATDP 2014 PosterThe IATDP works to keep students in school. Ideally, schools should provide such an engaging and enriching experience that students would want to be in place to participate. But, many students are opting out of public education, or any education program. Why is this happening and what can we do about it?

One of the Goals of the IATDP is to provide information about programs to keep children in school. One way that we do this is via our Annual Conference which will be held this year in San Antonio, Texas. We would love to have you participate in this information sharing and hearing officer training event. Please click on the picture of the Alamo at right for more information about this year's conference. Also download the Conference Brochure for a day-by-day conference schedule.
