Early Warning Data System (EWDS)


In collaboration with the National High School Center (NHSC), the TXCC adapted the NHSC early warning system for use by Texas grant recipients. The resulting EWDS is a database application that collects data on research-based dropout indicators: academic performance, attendance, and behavior. Students who are identified as potential dropouts are flagged and provided with interventions that are also tracked in the database. To support implementation, the TXCC provides training around the state on using the EWDS, which is available free of charge to Texas schools and districts.
