The EWS (Early Warning System) module allows districts to quickly identify students that are struggling with attendance, suspensions, etc. and open the corresponding screens. For example, if a student is listed for Attendance below 90%, clicking the student's name will open the student's Absence Summary where the issue can directly be reviewed.


1. From the Florida Reports menu, click EWS.

The EWS report offers lists, sorted by grade level, of students who qualify for any combination of the state-defined indicators, as shown in the first column below. The information shown is based on the filters at the top of the page, such as Effective Date.


Utilize the filters to further breakdown the report or you have the option to click the link to List All Students.

2. Select the Effective Date from the provided month, day, and year pull-downs or click the calendar icon for a calendar view.


3. Select the Discipline & Attendance Year from the provided pull-down.

4. Select a Course Years range from the corresponding pull-downs. If you need to pull data based on multiple school years, select a range here. If you only want to pull data for one year, select the same year from both pull-downs, as shown in the image.

To factor in grades earned in the previous school year as well as current grades, select the previous year from the first pull-down and the current year from the second pull-down.

5. Select the Course Terms for which data should be pulled. As shown in the image, you can select multiple terms.

6. Click Refresh Report.


7. Select any of the number links in any column to view the list of students who qualify for the selected criteria.


In the following example, Number of Students Enrolled for grade 09 was clicked.


a. Select the Current Year Discipline & Attendance Timeframe from the corresponding pull-down, such as FY (full year), S1 (semester 1), etc.

Once a timeframe is selected, review the report information, including Student name, Student ID number, Grade level, Num Indicators, Attendance Indicator, ELA Teacher, etc. Note: The grades shown here depend on the timeframe selected.
