5 Steps to Building an At-Risk Student Model
It is important for school districts to create and implement "On-Track Early Warning Systems" in order to identify students that are at risk for academic failure, disengagement, and mental health concerns. Through the systematic use of data, educators can promote more effective prevention and intervention services, while better understanding the root causes of these student issues.
In this webinar, we will address the importance of implementing an "On-Track Early Warning System." We will also take a deep look into what a comprehensive "Early Warning System" looks like, including how data is most effectively used to build one. Also included will be an exploration of the following:
  • Research-based methodologies and measures for identifying at-risk students
  • A step-by-step process to create and implement an Early Warning System
  • Existing models in use today, reviewing the most predictive indicators and cut points.
