At East Central College we are in the middle of a fully web-based Early
Alert System pilot. This is a Title III endeavor. Our letters sent out to
faculty are similar to those already posted by others.  I have attached a
syllabus blurb that the majority of faculty and all FYE sections put in
their syllabus.  We do not use a text form, but our system is an in house
created product using open source philosophy.  

It is searchable by new, open, closed, or refused referrals.  You can search
both by faculty and students. Faculty who log onto the system have their
classes listed.  Click on the class link and class rosters appear, click on
the student to start a new referral.  

Once the referral is sent, the Retention Specialist or team contacts the
student and works with service providers on campus to provide the service
needed for each student.  The service provider is then able to log onto the
system and update what action was taken, whether it was a satisfactory
outcome, or if future service is needed.

This is a quickly evolving program.  As new needs arise we are able to
accommodate them due to this being an open source product, we can make the
changes and upgrade the system to our liking.

So far this fall, we have been extremely busy with referrals.  We are
collecting data so we can assess the benefits of our system and the services
we are providing.  

More to come later,

Good Morning!

I am in the process of creating a web-based form that will be available to 
faculty to assist my office in quickly identifying students with a "C" or 
lower in classes typically taken by freshmen and sophomores (i.e. 
Psychology, Eng. 101).  I am interested in looking at forms created by 
other institutes and/or information on how your offices identify students 
in academic jeopardy.  Eventually we know that this form will need to be 
connected to a database through Access, but right now I'm working on 
creating a form that will provide ease of use for faculty members.  Any 
help would be appreciated as this is the first experience I've had in 
creating a web-based structure.  Thanks.
