The Early Warning and Response System, utilized by United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County and its community partners, automatically pulls data from the schools’ database so that teams of teachers, counselors and social workers can immediately identify students who are slipping off track, identify the underlying causes of why a student is off track, put in place targeted interventions, and track progress. This data is presented in an easy to read dashboard format. It can show individual, school and systems-level data for use by a teacher working with an individual student as well as a superintendent searching for important trends that need to be addressed.
Where We Are Using The EWRS
It is currently in use at 30 local schools and 10+ community partner organizations. More than 18,000 local intermediate and middle school students are monitored each day.
The Early Warning and Response System is funded through a partnership between United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County, Asheville City Schools, and Buncombe County Schools.
