Description The study examined estimated effects of school mobility on students’ academic and behavioral outcomes. Based on data for 2,560 public schools from the School Survey on Crime and Safety (SSOCS) 2007-2008, the findings indicate that schools serving a total student population of more than 50% minority students, high schools, and urban schools tend to have more school mobility than their counterparts. After controlling for crime prevention programs, violence, and school background characteristics, school mobility is negatively associated with principals’ perceived students’ aspiration and school achievement and positively associated with students’ insubordination. Policy implications for school leaders are offered.
