The student’s academic progress is systematically monitored and, when necessary, appropriate intervention strategies are applied. Instructors are the main contributors to this component effort through their contacts with students. At L.A. Harbor College, the Early Alert system has been established to identify students who are beginning to experience difficulties in their courses before they encounter serious academic problems.
Early Alert Online = Improved Student Success
The LACCD has created a new Online Early Alert System that allows the instructor to send an alert to students through the Online Faculty Roster System. Instructors can send students a custom email, pre-formatted email, a referral email, or a pre-formatted letter to be printed and mailed.
Instructors can choose to:
Notify students of various classroom issues such as: Missing assignments, excessive absences, or if a meeting with the instructor is required.
Refer them to student services on campus such as: Personal Counseling, Academic Counseling, Financial Aid, EOPS, or
Recommend extra help such as: Tutoring, Supplemental Instruction, Writing Lab, Math Lab, or Reading Lab.
Notify the student services offices on campus of the referrals made so they can follow up with students.
Please contact Elizabeth Colocho at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or need help using this system.
