Using Early Indicators to Provide Student Supports in Secondary Schools STLC

Published Curated on February 11, 2014

This collection provides secondary school teachers, leaders, and other stakeholders with information and resources for identifying students off track to graduation as early as ninth grade. The first resource, an information brief, presents research on early warning indicators and how they can be used to create student supports to prevent dropout and promote school success. The next group of resources includes an information brief and accompanying tool developed by the National High School Center.
