Starfish Early Alert


The Starfish EARLY ALERT is an early warning and tracking system designed to identify students who need help during their academic pursuits at Long Beach City College. Starfish EARLY ALERT allows faculty and support staff to engage students and provide positive reinforcement and academic encouragement throughout a given term.

Using this system, faculty and support staff will be able to trigger flags notifying them of any problems a student may have that require appropriate student-centered interventions. In other cases, the system can send a “Kudo” to acknowledge strong student performance and accomplishments.

The Starfish EARLY ALERT system is currently being piloted with plans for expansion to the entire campus community by Fall 2018.
