Starfish (Early Alert) is an early warning and student tracking system. It is a web based tool to effectively identify at-risk students and then manage support effort through meaningful contact between students and their advisors, tutors, and instructors.
The system enables instructors to flag students that have not been attending or doing well in your classes so that advisors can intervene on your behalf. Using this system will save you the time and effort you would normally spend trying to contact students yourselves. You may also write instructions in the comments section if you want the advisors to have the students “see instructor” or “go to tutoring”.
