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.
