Title:Developing early warning systems to identify potential high school dropout
Organization:National High School Center
Short Description:Recent research in large urban school districts, including Chicago and Philadelphia, provides information about powerful indicators that can predict, by the end of the first year of high school, or even during the first semester, whether students will complete high school. This brief reviews this research and uses it as a basis for providing guidance to schools and districts about using data to address the dropout problem.
Annotation:This guide, intended for educators and policymakers at the school, district, and state levels, provides information about • Factors that contribute to a student’s dropping out • Research on early warning indicators • School-level early warning systems – Step-by-step instructions for how schools can calculate indicators and identify which students are on track to graduate and which are most likely to drop out while there is still time to intervene and prevent dropouts • District-level early warning systems – Information for districts regarding the development of district-wide early warning systems that begin with a local analysis of graduation and dropout patterns in the district • States’ roles in supporting the development and use of early warning systems.
