Superintendent Vince Colaluca

         
Superintendent Vince Colaluca along with Juvenile Court Judge Theresa Dellick and Superintendents Joe Nohra (Struthers) and Tim Saxton (Boardman) presented details about the Early Warning System at the OSBA Capital Conference in Columbus, OH. Colaluca noted successes in keeping kids on track to graduate.            
         
What is the Early Warning System?        
Below is additional information about the Early Warning System and how it is utilized in the Austintown School District.        
         
EARLY WARNING SYSTEM FOR SCHOOLS        
Austintown School District is participating in a three-year pilot program in collaboration with Mahoning County Juvenile Court, called the EARLY WARNING SYSTEM. The focus of the program is to identify students who struggle with attendance, behavior, and grades in an attempt to provide early interventions to help students successfully graduate high school.        
         
The Early Warning System is currently in use at AIS, AMS, and Fitch High School. Every fifth through twelfth grader is tracked through a software program. Scores are given based on the number of unexcused absences, in-school and out-of-school suspensions, and the number of core classes the student has failed.        
         
These scores are completely confidential, but allow an Early Warning Team made up of teachers, administrators, and guidance counselors to review the data, and plan positive interventions for students whose score shows them to be at risk of dropping out.        
         
The Early Warning Federal Grant also provides money for staff training, and other positive programs to be established. It incorporates community resources such as Meridian Health and PsychCare, and counseling services, with school and court resources.        
         
Once the grant period is complete, the Early Warning Program should sustain itself in the Austintown Schools since the training and intervention programs will be firmly in place.
