Early Warning System (EWS)


Early Warning System





Early Warning Systems (EWS) enable educators to identify students based on a number of at-risk characteristics for the purpose of providing early intervention and preventative supports. Within Volusia County Schools, the risk factors of prior retentions, over-age for grade, office disciplinary referrals, absences, out of school suspensions, Grade Point Average and FSA reading and math scores of 2 or below are factored into the Early Warning System composite score.   
Information and data gleaned from EWS are so potentially powerful  that the Florida Department of Education now requires Florida school districts to address Early Warning Systems within their School Improvement Plans. 
Directions for accessing EWS reports for schools within Volusia County as well as the legend identifying specific EWS indicators are obtainable below:
