New Visions for Public Schools
Students who achieve critical academic benchmarks such as high attendance rates, continuous levels of credit accumulation, and high grades have a greater likelihood of success throughout high school and beyond. However, keeping students on track toward meeting graduation requirements and quickly identifying students who are at risk of falling off track present challenges for school leaders, teachers, parents, and students. This paper describes the core components of New Visions for Public Schools' (New Visions) early warning system--clear benchmarks and multiple tools for multiple audiences--and the movement of these tools into the DataCation platform, a web-based student information system providing real-time data delivery to 77 New York City schools. (Contains 1 table, 5 figures and 23 footnotes.)
