Revolving doors of Nebraska schools: A mixed methods study of Nebraska Schoolwide Title I schools and systematic practices implemented to address the needs of highly mobile students

Jane E Stavem, University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to identify practices implemented in Nebraska Schoolwide Title I elementary schools to address the needs of highly mobile students. Schools identified for the study were analyzed in terms of the primary causes of student mobility, district support for practices that led to successful transitions for highly mobile students, and mitigating factors that caused the practices to be implemented. A mixed methods study was conducted. An online survey was conducted based on best practices, which were identified and broken down into eight main sections—enrollment; academic placement; student placement; classroom connections; family connections; unique needs; school/community connections; and exit transitions. ^ Using both quantitative and qualitative designs, this researcher studied practices currently being implemented in Nebraska Schoolwide Title I elementary schools. The online quantitative survey captured the perceptions of the participants with follow up qualitative interviews enriching and extending the results of the survey. ^
