Definition 2: The purpose of an EWS is to identify students who are at risk of missing key educational milestones, such as graduating school, and provide them with interventions to get them back on track. When an EWS is implemented successfully, students who are at risk of not meeting the education milestone receive appropriate interventions to get them back on track.
