Early Warning Intervention and Monitoring System (EWIMS)

Implementation Guide Thumbnail

An Early Warning Intervention and Monitoring System (EWIMS) is a data-driven, decision-making process that helps educators systematically identify students who are showing signs that they are at risk of dropping out of school, examine the underlying causes of risk and match students’ needs to interventions, and monitor students’ progress and the success of those interventions. Fundamentally EWIMS is an ongoing cycle of examining data and making decisions about supports and interventions to help students get back on track and succeed.

Early warning systems are a cross-office effort that brings in strategic partners in support of differentiated instruction and personalized learning, leveraging appropriate technologies.  As a result of this research, collaboration, and technology districts and educators are empowered to deliver appropriate and effective student interventions and provide targeted professional learning.
