Early Warning Systems—What Research and Practice Say About Indicators and Interventions

Presented by: Robert Balfanz, Johns Hopkins University

Early warning indicators and data systems can identify students at risk of dropping out and in need of support to improve academic performance. These systems can help schools organize to reduce the risk of disengagement from and/or dropping out of school, as well as improve academic performance. During this webinar, Balfanz presents a brief overview of early warning indicators, describes the importance of collecting these data, provides guidance on the examination and interpretation of data, and demonstrates various ways to respond to the data through interventions.
