Joslyn’s Story

Ninth-grader Joslyn was at risk of dropping out unless someone intervened at school to move her towards her graduation requirements. Below grade level when the year began, she failed recent benchmark tests in both math and English. When an Ed-Fi-powered dashboard flagged these early warning signs, Joslyn’s homeroom teacher dug deeper into the data to plan a discussion with Joslyn and her parents around remediation strategies. She also provided Joslyn’s school counselor with background details necessary to give Joslyn the targeted support she needs. By the start of the new school year, Joslyn had caught up with her peers in her core classes and was on track to graduating with her peers.
