  • This Task has been designed for use by Faculty. For Faculty

Early Alert is a computerized email based system of early warning and follow-up for students identified as having academic difficulties early in the semester AND a feedback procedure for all instructors regarding the specific actions taken by their identified students. It consolidates all traditional "academic progress reports" into one roster and establishes a systematic referral process for students experiencing academic difficulties. It is designed to be efficient and technologically user-friendly for instructional and support staff, as well as informative, direct and non-threatening for students.

Once an instructor submits an Early Alert for a student, an email is generated to the student letting them know that the instructor is concerned about their academic progress in their class.  The letter encourages the students to meet with the instructor and follow up with counseling appointment to secure support services. In addition, student support programs in which the student belongs, such as Athletics or IWCC will also be notified.  

Early Alert also offers a variety of study skills workshops including Time Management, Note-Taking/Outlining, Reading and Study Skills, Preparing for Exams, Memory Techniques, Math Anxiety and Study Skills, Goal Setting, Motivation, Learning Styles and Stress Management. These workshops are available each semester. The workshops are one hour long and are offered on a walk- in basis or brought into a classroom. The workshops are open to all students at Citrus College. If you are interested in having a workshop brought to your classroom, call Susan Gonzales at (626) 914-8535 and she will assist you.
