Term: School Transfers / School Changes

Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2020-07-20


The number of times a student changes schools that was not part of an expected progression through the grades. Expected progressions were identified when a student reached the highest grade level in a school and the next year transferred to a different school (i.e., graduating from grade 6 in one school and starting grade 7 in another school).

NOTE: Current MCHP research refers to these school changes as "school transfers".
