    A Research-Based Approach to Monitoring Attendance and Dropout Risk: The Early Warning Indicator Report in Branching Minds [Live Demo]

    Wednesday, November 01, 2023
    1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
    1 PM ET / 12 PM CT / 10 AM PT

    Early Warning Indicators (EWIs) are commonly used within a multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) to identify students at risk for drop-out, academic failure, and other negative social-emotional and behavioral outcomes.

    In this webinar, we will highlight the research evidence and best practices recommendations for using EWIs within an MTSS. We will discuss the benefits of early identification practices and how these indicators can be leveraged, alongside other pieces of student data, to accurately identify students needing support as well as how to build an effective intervention plan. The BRM team will provide a demonstration of our EWI report and how it allows school staff to understand student needs and take necessary action. 

    Join this webinar to learn:  

    • The research behind early warning indicator systems
    • Strategies and approaches for leveraging EWI data in an MTSS practice, especially when addressing chronic absenteeism
    • How the Branching Minds platform can be used to bridge the gap between EWIs and action
