Dropout early warning systems designed by staff at Adams 14 in Commerce City, Colorado. Dynamic system (updated daily) that flagged kids from K-12 based on risk for dropping out of school based on attendance, behavior, course failure, whether they transferred into the district, and language impact. Dropouts from school have a significant impact on the local economy and the overall health of a community. By predicting who is at greatest risk of dropping out the system can dedicated resources towards these students to intervene. DEWD
