Nature and aim of the Guidelines

The Guidelines for developing an institutional early warning system (EWS) is intended to help the work of schools who are about to build an early warning system for preventing and reducing dropout in their institution.

Within the framework of the CroCooS project it is a supporting document for the mentors who are assisting the institutional development in the pilot schools aiming at setting up a sustainable system for preventing early school leaving and reducing dropout rates in secondary level schools

The Guidelines covers the recommended principals and the process of building an EWS on an institutional level:
