LAKE ERIE COLLEGE EARLY ALERT SYSTEM
The Early Alert System (EAS) is a service offered through a collaborative partnership between the Divisions of Student Affairs and Academic Affairs to identify and respond as quickly as possible to students exhibiting at-risk academic or personal behaviors. All faculty and staff are encouraged to use this service to initiate a coordinated and timely response to serious student issues that are likely to jeopardize their academic progress or overall personal well-being. This service is intended to supplement, but not replace, the respective roles of faculty and staff on behalf of students. Please indicate all preliminary intervention steps taken prior to submitting an official Alert.
Dr. John Spiesman, Director of the Student Success Center, will serve as the gatekeeper for all submissions, and can also be contacted directly in the event there are questions about whether an Alert is warranted or in cases where information to be shared is strictly confidential. Dr. Brent Robinson, Dean of Student Academic Success, will coordinate the overall process and intervene as necessary in particular cases.
Once an Alert has been submitted, Dr. Spiesman will forward the concern to the most appropriate staff member on the Early Alert Team. Unless information shared must remain confidential, a copy of the Alert will be shared with the student and his or her advisor. Feedback on the status of an Alert, including the final resolution, will be shared as soon as possible with the faculty or staff member who made the original submission.
Please contact Dr. Spiesman directly if you need to discuss a student concern privately or if you have any questions about what information is appropriate to disclose.
Thank you for your assistance in helping our students reach their highest potential!
