Introduction to the Graduation Tracking System (GTS)
Alabama Department of Education
This guide is a training and supportive tool for use by local education agencies (LEAs) in the state of Alabama that are utilizing the Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) Information-INow-INFocus information system software. The Graduation Tracking System (GTS) utilizes existing STI technology to capture student information pertaining to attendance, behavior, and course performance data as "high yield" indicators. This training is designed to provide LEAs with the capability to: (1) use existing STI technology to establish an early warning system to identify which students are on-track to graduate and which students are off-track to graduate and most likely to dropout; and (2) design a process for analyzing GTS reports and for aligning interventions/resources that provide support for off-track students. The training module outlines a six-step implementation process that includes recommendations from the National High School Center at the American Institute for Research on how to effectively implement an early warning tracking system. Worksheets and a glossary are included.
