In the framework of the CroCooS project Early Warning System (EWS) is a tool used by educational institutions, based on measurable data and observable phenomena, facilitating the timely identification of students at risk of dropping out and also the establishment and application of prevention measures on an individual level.

It is recommended to operate an early warning system from a very early age preferably already on pre-primary level, but at least from lower secondary. Within the framework of the CroCooS project the consortium decided to focus the policy experimentation on upper-secondary level. Therefore the early warning system to be developed within the project will concentrate on the upper secondary schools but the principals described in the project materials can mostly be adapted to other levels of the education.
