Customize Tools and Supports

AIR translates research and evidence-based practices into ready-to-use, effective models to identify students early and support them with appropriate interventions to achieving key educational milestones. Our staff listen to clients and develops tools and supports that reflect the local context. We build implementation tools and resources that lays out a step-by-step process of establishing an early warning system that integrates with other initiatives that target and support at-risk students.

AIR experts have worked with clients at all levels – states, districts, and schools – to design tools and supports that are flexible and customized to their particular needs. For example, AIR helped develop the Career and Technical Education Early Warning System on behalf of Chicago Public Schools to feed real-time information from district databases into a single location that supports more than 20,000 students participating in career and technical education courses across the district. Learn more about the tools and supports we develop at the EWS Online Tool.
