Innovative solutions help educators predict & prevent high school drop-out.

At a glance:

Corona Norco Unified School District needed a system to identify which students were at risk for drop out. Utilizing predictive analytics, we identified trends and could predict with 98% accuracy which students were at risk. The district was then able to create diverse programs specifically designed to engage with these students and reduce the dropout rates.

 

Customer Challenge

High school drop-outs are one of the biggest concerns for the school district. To address the complicated issues that students face, teachers and counselors need to know when and how to give students extra support and ensure their future. Corona Norco had a plentitude of student data, but no accurate way to identify students early on so they could to get them the support that they needed to continue their education.

 

Approach and Solution:

Logic20/20 created a set of dashboards that highlight at-risk students and their individual needs. Our dashboard allows them to quickly prioritize their limited resources to the students who need it most.

Logic20/20 created a predictive model based on historical data that predicts dropout rate with 98% accuracy. We:

  • Created a new data warehouse that is a consistent, unified source of truth.
  • Designed a model based on research that fit the educators needs and was tuned for accuracy.
  • Organized data per logical categories that the district already used for reporting.
