EWS Level Summary

  • This is breakdown of percentage and number of students by level
    • Levels are indicative of a student having 0, 1, 2, or 3 risk indicators (attendance, course grades/averages, behavior incidences) and tells you how many students as well as the percentage that number identifies in that particular grade level
  • Click on a specific grade level to see:
    • All students enrolled in that particular grade level
    • The identified EWS Level of Risk by student
    • A breakdown of the 3 risk indicators
    • Viewed by Quarter/Semester
    • Mark Average and Behavior are clickable links to gain further information

Color-Coded Level of Risk Indicator

  • Light Green: 0 risk indicators
  • Dark Green: 1 risk indicator identified
  • Yellow: 2 risk indicators identified
  • Red: 3 risk indicators identified

Deciding if Action is Necessary due to Risk Indicated

  • Circled Exclamation Point beside the name of a student

    • Hover over the exclamation point
    • This will prompt the team by stating that the student has a risk indicated and needs to be decided if any actions are required. Please click EWS Level cell to make decision
    • Click Accept and the system will ask the team to select the area of concern they would like the student to be identified at-risk for

      • The team should use the information from the EWS to determine which area(s) the student should be identified at-risk in
        • i.e., If risk indicators are present due to behavior incidences, the student could be identified at-risk in Behavior; if Course Grades are the area indicated, the team would click on Mark Avg. to determine which area – Literacy or Mathematics – is the area of concern
      • Click on the area of concern that the student is at-risk in
        • This automatically moves them to the Tier 1 At-Risk level for the identified area on their class list on the Stored! Side
        • Follow the directions for individual students identified as Tier 1 At-Risk in the Moving Between Tiered section of the manual
      • If an area of concern is not present, that is because the student has either:
        • Already been identified as at-risk in that area
        • Currently receiving interventions in that specific area
    • Click Deny and the system will prompt the team to note rationale for denial of risk indicator

Early Warning System Risk Report

  • Click on the black Menu box in the upper left corner of the screen
  • Click on EWS Risk Report
  • The Risk Report provides a summary of all students identified in the EWS as having an indicated risk level and the decision that was made (if any) by the team regarding that particular student
    • Ignored
    • Accepted
    • Denied – with rationale
