INSTRUCTIONAL LEADERSHIP ABSTRACTS, Volume 12, Issue 3, March, 2020
We are happy to share the findings of Dr. Reynold’s research, first published in the May 2018 Instructional Leadership Abstract. Mid Valley Community College (MVCC), a pseudonym, is an example of a community college early alert system that has had some great success. The faculty at MVCC voted to implement the use of early alert report by all faculty in 2016-2017 as part of their 5-year strategic plan. While MVCC may not have had 100% participation in the early alert report, they did find that a majority of faculty participated, and an increase in referrals in the 2016-2017 academic year, particularly in the fall of 2016 when the initiative was freshest on the minds of the faculty (Reynolds, 2018).
