Study Says Moving Bad for Students

Dr. Mark Stock LCSD#1 Superintendent

Laramie County School District One Superintendent Mark Stock says a recent district survey shows that moving from school to school within the district tends to hurt students’ academic performance. He cited one example showing that fifth graders  who have never moved achieved a score of proficient on the PAWS  reading test 92 percent of the time.

Students who had moved four or more times within the district only achieved a proficient rating 59 percent of the time. Stock says the survey only included moves within the district, not students who moved in from elsewhere in the state or nation. He says the district is looking at ways to mitigate the effect, such as standardization of courses between schools.
