Early Warning System Tools Help Keep Middle Grades and High School Students On Track to Graduate High School

The National High School Center released a new Early Warning System Middle Grades (EWS MG) Tool and an enhanced Early Warning System High School (EWS HS) Tool. These Microsoft Excel-based tools rely on readily available student-level data (attendance, course failures, grade point average, credit accumulation, and behavior) to identify middle grade and high school students who show early warning signs that they are at risk for dropping out of high school.
