Early Warning Systems

Goal

  • Establish an early warning system (EWS) to determine who is at risk of dropping out of school.

Summary

Arguably the most important preventative element in addressing dropout prevention is establishing an early warning system (and the use of data) to determine who is at risk of dropping out of school. Indicators made available through an early warning system can help schools target students in need with appropriate interventions.

There are three essential pieces of data that need to be gathered to predict with relative accuracy which students will eventually dropout of school. These include:

  1. Attendance
  2. Behavior
  3. Course Failure
