Video Series: Early Warning Intervention and Monitoring System (EWIMS)

Early warning systems grew out of the simple premise that disengagement from school is a gradual process and that students send identifiable signals that they are on the path to dropping out. As a result, data can be used to identify trends among students, enabling educators to intervene with those who are likely to leave the education system.

This video series, a collaborative effort by the Great Lakes Comprehensive Center and the Michigan Department of Education, covers the seven-step process of installing the Early Warning Intervention and Monitoring System (EWIMS).
