CCR – EARLY WARNING SYSTEM – MIDDLE SCHOOLS

The Indian Education Division supports the development (or strengthening) the Early Warning System (EWS) at the middle school level. This is both for public middle schools and BIE middle schools that will feed into a public high school. The EWS is an effective process that identifies and monitors students who are at risk of being retained or who are at risk of dropping out. This pilot serves (10) ten entities comprised of both schools, and tribes to support successful pathways for Native American students.
