Report : Early Warning Systems to Improve Student Outcomes: Supporting States, Districts, and Schools with Every Student Succeeds Act Requirements
This brief from Early Warning Systems in Education at American Institutes for Research (AIR) describes how an early warning system can meet Every Student Succeeds Act, 2015 (ESSA) requirements for states to support the lowest performing high schools in the nation. AIR’s experts have provided direct aid and support to more than 100 school districts in more than 30 states to build, implement, and evaluate a variety of EWS initiatives. This support has resulted in improved graduation rates for schools, districts, and states.
Webinar : The State Role in Early Warning Data Systems
States can play a critical role in advancing the development and use of early warning systems (EWS). This webinar was hosted by the Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Midwest and its Dropout Prevention Research Alliance to discuss state-level support of EWS. AIR’s expert Susan Therriault, Ed.D., discussed her research on early warning systems and how she had helped conduct research and support states developing their own EWS. Other presenters included Jared Knowles of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, John Gimpl of the Minnesota Department of Education, and Timothy Conboy of Rosemont High School of Minnesota.
