Cardinali will further discuss dropout prevention strategies at nFocus' Communities for Change 2013 symposium, taking place Oct. 23-25 at the Hilton Omaha in Omaha, Neb. The event is a premier annual conference for nonprofit, city government, education and community decision-makers who are focused on making a positive impact on complex social problems.
"Preventing dropouts and ensuring academic success are important issues for the entire community, but there are no silver bullets," Cardinali said. "At Communities for Change 2013, our audience will see how powerful and flexible the integrated support model we utilize can be because of its focus on evaluating school and student needs and bringing in community resources that directly impact those needs."
"Communities In Schools' evidence-based approach has already helped thousands of students across the nation," said Ananda Roberts, president of nFocus Solutions. "We are proud to partner with such an outstanding organization and pleased to feature Cardinali as a premier speaker at our conference this fall."
