School Scheduling and At-Risk Students: Looped Perspectives for Academic Support
by Kester, Kyle R., D.Ed., The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, 2018, 125; 10791084
Abstract (Summary)

School scheduling and at-risk students: Looped perspectives for academic support. Students are graduating without requisite skills needed for life beyond high school- or not graduating at all (Institute of Education, 2014; New American Education, 2014). How do current school scheduling models affect the learning of students for academic support? Does a looping model affect students’ academically or socially? This qualitative case study examines the perspectives of high school students who are at-risk in both looped and non-looped classes, as well as their teachers, through interviews, written reflections, and archival data. Findings include academic achievement, self-efficacy, and relationships with teachers, students, and the school community. Students who participated in a loop for purposes of academic support expressed deeper relationships with their teachers and perceptions of academic improvement and self-confidence.
