The Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools has established a goal that “Each student will exit high school prepared for college and careers in a global society, and at every level, performance is on-track and on-time for success. To reach this goal, the district has created a District Continuous Improvement Plan (DCIP) which details what schools must do, to ensure that all students are on-track and on-time for success. In order to determine our success in reaching the goal, the Early Warning System is a tool with indicators that flag students who may need assistance to stay on-track and on-time for graduation.
