Purpose: Timely academic progression and graduation helps students achieve academic success. In recognition of the critical need to support educational attainment, schools, districts, and states are using early warning systems to identify students who are not on-track to graduate. Using the information available through early warning systems, education agencies can develop specific interventions and supports to improve student and school outcomes, including graduation rates. The Forum Early Warning Systems Data Working Group is developing a new resource that will provide best practice information regarding the design, development, implementation, and use of early warning systems and their data.
Current Tasks: The Early Warning Systems Data Working Group is currently developing a new Forum resource.
