Roosevelt Middle School in Erie, Pennsylvania, one of eight schools selected in 2013 to receive targeted support through MCPER's Middle School Matters Institute, was featured in the local news for its role in piloting a data system aimed at identifying middle schoolers at risk for later high school dropout.

Roosevelt is one of four schools piloting the Opening Doors Early Warning System, part of Pennsylvania First Lady Susan Corbett's Opening Doors initiative. Corbett toured the school on May 8. For a full story and a video on Corbett's visit to the school, visit the Erie Times-News website.
