March 31, 2016

Time: 10–11:30 a.m. Pacific Time


Description: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 201 webinar on March 31, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 am PDT, is part of the REL Learning Series on Early Warning Systems. Participants will learn how to build an effective team that is able to incorporate EWS into everyday practices and data use initiatives. This interactive, 90-minute session features real-world practitioner stories and includes an opportunity for participants to practice matching sample interventions to indicators and evaluating whether there are enough interventions to support the number of identified struggling students.

Research Alliance: This is a cross-REL event cosponsored by REL Northwest, REL Central, and REL West—all of which are working with several research alliances on improving graduation rates and preventing dropouts through EWS.

Audience: The primary audience for the event is school and district staff members who are familiar with EWS and have begun to establish an EWS team, but would like more in-depth information on how to incorporate EWS into everyday practices.

Speakers: Sarah Frazelle, REL Northwest
Jenny Scala, REL West
Jason Harlacher, REL Central
Kenwyn Derby, REL West
Two Practitioners, TBD
