February 25, 2016

Time: 10 a.m.–11 a.m. Pacific Standard Time

Location: Virtual

Description: Every 26 seconds a teenager drops out of school in the United States. For schools looking for proactive strategies to improve graduation rates, Early Warning Systems (EWS) can identify students when they are beginning to fall off-track, allowing schools time to intervene and address student needs.

The Early Warning Systems 101 webinar on February 25, from 10 a.m. to 11a.m. Pacific Standard Time, is part of the REL Learning Series on Early Warning Systems. This one-hour session provides an overview of the five core components of EWS: building a team, identifying appropriate indicators, creating data reports, mapping interventions to indicators, and evaluating interventions. The webinar will also feature practitioners from Oregon and Ohio, who will share their experiences in team building and mapping interventions.

Research Alliance: No alliance is directly involved in this Task 6 cross-REL event, though alliance members from the various RELs will likely attend (including alliances associated with the co-sponsors, REL Southwest and REL West).

Audience: This introductory webinar is intended for districts and schools new to using an EWS or for new staff joining districts and schools with an established EWS in place.

Speakers: Sarah Frazelle, Education Northwest
Jenny Scala, American Institutes for Research
Denise Wright, Centennial School District, Oregon
Amy Szymanski, Secondary Transition and Workforce Development consultant with Ohio’s State Support Team
