What data, current or prior year, should be used to complete the Early Warning Systems (EWS) section of the SIP?

The purpose of recording EWS data in the SIP is to look for trends to inform the needs assessment process prior to determining strategic goals and action plans for the coming school year; therefore, summative data from the previous school year should be used.

This practice is not to be confused with the ongoing use of the EWS throughout the year to identify and support students who become off track. For year-round monitoring, school teams should continue to review the most current data available.
