AIR’s Jenny Scala Hosts Workshop on Selecting Appropriate Interventions in Puerto Rico

Jenny Scala, Senior Researcher at American Institutes for Research and member of the Early Warning Systems in Education team, conducted a workshop on behalf of the Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Northeast & Islands in Puerto Rico on October 10, 2014. The workshop was attended by more than 60 school-based social workers in primary and secondary schools and others from across the island. Scala led the participants through using a multi-tiered system of support and evidence-based recommendations from two Institute of Education Science practice guides on using data to improve decision-making and dropout-prevention. Matching supports to students needs is an integral part of an early warning system. Read more about the workshop by visiting the REL Northeast & Islands website.
