Student Mobility in Anderson School District Two

 

This school year, we are welcoming 140 new students from 1st grade through 12th grade. This is part of an increase in student mobility we are seeing across the country. Many of you may have spent your entire career in Anderson Two schools but we are witnessing an increase in mobility each year. What is student mobility? It is a widespread problem facing American schools in almost all states. The majority of elementary and secondary school children now make at least one non-promotional school change over the course of their school career. Many children will make multiple moves, even in a single school year.

Why are we seeing such an increase in student mobility? The most common reason is a residential move related to a parent’s job or other financial instability. As employment opportunities are growing, families are relocating to areas with better job opportunities. In addition, families that do not own their homes make up about 39% of the mobility rate. Furthermore, many families are finding it necessary to share homes with family or friends for a certain time period in an attempt to regain financial stability.

What suggestions could we offer to a new family moving into our community? First of all, plan to visit the school as much as possible to become familiar with the buildings, the staff and the procedures. Also, you may want to ask a teacher or a counselor to assign a buddy to your child to assist with some of these same issues. Encouraging your child to be involved in extra-curricular activities is one of the best measures to ensure your child feels comfortable adapting to a new school. Finally, talk to your child and find out as much as possible about the school he/she is new to and the challenges they are facing.

We don’t know the full story of each of our 140 new students, but we sure look forward to getting to know them.  Anderson School District Two is a great place to relocate your family and for your child to finish their scholastic career. We look forward to serving your family and providing a fantastic experience at our schools!
