Supporting Successful Transitions from Middle School to High School

Organization: REL Mid-Atlantic
Date: November 10, 2016
Time: 3:00-5:00 PM EASTERN
Registration: Individual registration is required to participate in this webinar
Description: This webinar addresses ways in which educators and administrators can support students in their transition from middle school to high school, which can disrupt student learning and functioning. The students who struggle the most academically in middle school are the most likely to drop out of high school.

As academics and social relationships differ in middle school and high school, the degree to which social relationships change is directly affected by the ways in which school districts are organized. Research shows that low-achieving middle school students often don’t receive the support they need in making the transition to high school. Dr. Penny Bishop, Associate Dean and Professor of Middle Level Education at the University of Vermont, will discuss her experience and research on transition, as well as the use of transition programs and support systems that can benefit the most vulnerable students.
