10 Effects of Mobility Mobility is associated with lower student achievement. Mobility is associated with low test scores regardless of the quality of the school’s instructional programs. Mobility affects students the most, but parents, teachers, school personnel, and classmates at both the departing and receiving schools are impacted.

17 High-Quality Teacher Recruitment and Retention Teacher and leader quality are two of the most important predictors of student academic achievement. Many of the best teachers begin their careers in the Knox County Urban Schools but many choose to transfer to other Knox County Schools after being hired into the system.

24 Attendance There is a direct correlation between attendance and academic achievement. Students who go to class invariably do better in school and maximize their opportunity for success. Attendance research indicate students who are in school most of the time do better on state tests. Studies also indicate students who are absent more often score lower on state tests. Tardies to school also affect student learning. A student who is 10 minutes late every day will miss 30 hours of instruction during the year.
