This study evaluated through an analysis of baseline data whether Stockton Unified School District's board decision to transition from middle school settings to K-8 settings result in: increased student achievement as measured by performance on the California Standards Tests (CSTs) in English language arts and Mathematics, and decreased problem behaviors as measured through the number of suspensions at the 7th grade level in its first year of implementation for the 2006-2007 school year. Four former middle schools and thirty nine K-8 elementary school's achievement and suspension data comprised the purposeful sample for this one shot case study. Former middle school populations averaged 684 to 747 students per school while the average number of 7th grade students attending the newly formed K-8s averaged 85 students per site.AN ANALYSIS OF STOCKTON UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT a#39; S 7TH GRADE STUDENT PERFORMANCE AND ... on the California Standards Tests (CST s) in English language arts and Mathematics, and decreased problem behaviors ...
