Effective Practices for Middle School Students with Multiple Needs. E&R Research Alert. E&R Report No. 06.22
Wake County Public School System
Analysis of Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) End-of-Grade (EOG) performance results indicates that WCPSS students with the most difficulty reaching accountability standards are those with more than one of the following characteristics: are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch (FRL), have disabilities (students with disabilities, or SWD), and/or have limited English proficiency (LEP). The Curriculum and Instruction Department (C&I) requested a study from the Evaluation and Research Department (E&R) to identify effective school practices that: (1) promote the achievement of students with multiple-risk factors (FRL, SWD, and LEP); and (2) provide schools with hope that they can meet the challenge of helping students with multiple needs grow academically. The study compared characteristics and practices of schools with greater and lesser success in promoting academic growth of students with multiple risk factors. Schools that had shown the most positive and least positive patterns of progress in achievement for multi-risk students were identified. Data were collected through school and teacher observations, staff interviews, and staff checklists. Findings, implications, and questions for consideration are presented in this report.
