Jessica was a straight-A student. She always attended school. Her behavior was excellent.

But we knew she was at risk of dropping out.

We knew before her teachers knew. We knew before her parents knew. We even knew before Jessica knew.

How? Because Jessica’s school district had collected some vital pieces of information from all of its students — using that data from ScholarCentric’s assessment to formulate an “academic risk index” —  we were able to correctly predict that Jessica was at-risk of not completing high school.

And Jessica did struggle. But thanks to the information we’d provided her district, she had already been offered additional support services that helped her stay on track to graduate. In essence, she had been inoculated against the risk.
