Time: 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. EDT

Location: Virtual

Description: Through this webinar, participants will learn about various K–12 early warning system (EWS) models, how EWSs can be best leveraged to meet educator and school leader needs, and how data and indicators can be applied in identifying and assisting at-risk students.

The webinar will provide an overview of the development of early warning systems in K–12 education, highlight differences in the models used in REL Appalachia states, and describe options that school district leaders and educators could consider in implementing or improving their early warning system. It will also discuss several different approaches to EWSs found across REL Appalachia’s states, as well as how longitudinal data systems can be applied as key resources for EWS indicators.

Audience: This webinar is intended for staff of districts and schools that are planning or implementing an early warning system, as well as staff of state education agencies and others responsible for organizing components of an effective early warning system.
