National High School Center
The Early Warning System (EWS) Tool v2.0 is a Microsoft Excel-based tool developed by the National High School Center at the American Institutes for Research in collaboration with Matrix Knowledge Group. The tool enables schools, districts, and states to identify students who may be at risk of dropping out of high school and to monitor these students' responses to interventions. The intended purpose is to support students with an increased risk of disengagement, in order to get them back on track for graduation. This technical manual provides basic information about how to use the EWS Tool v2.0. Appended are: (1) Import Data Templates; (2) Backing Up Data; and (3) Custom Report Field Definitions. (Contains 4 tables, 10 endnotes and 29 exhibits.)
