To stem the tide of students dropping out, many schools and districts are turning to early warning systems (EWS) that signal whether a student is at risk of not graduating from high school. While some research exists about establishing these systems, there is little information about the actual implementation strategies that are being used across the country. This Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Northwest guide summarizes the experiences and recommendations of EWS users throughout the United States, which can provide a roadmap for rural schools and districts considering using these systems to improve academic outcomes.
