This interactive event included information on two curricula for N or D students, one focusing on increasing essential literacy skills, the other on preparing students for the critical transition from facilities back to community schools. Academic achievement for this population is becoming an increasing National focus as the Federal Government prepares to collect data on N or D academic indicators for the first time. Joining us were experts Mary Beth Curtis, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Special Education at Lesley University, and Dorothy Wodraska, M.Ed., Correctional Education Specialist and Director of Federal Education Grant Programs for the Arizona Supreme Court's Juvenile Justice Services Division.
