Evidence of effectiveness

Results from a quasi-experimental (QE) evaluation conducted in the 2014-2015 academic year (unpublished report written in 2016) support the effectiveness of School-Connect for high school students. The evaluation included 947 grade 9 students (Latinx = 63%, White = 18%, Black = 15%; students eligible for free or reduced price lunch = 63%). This evaluation found that students who participated in the intervention demonstrated higher average core subject passing rates, and were less likely to be disruptive in class and rude to adults compared to students in the comparison group (outcomes reported 12 months after baseline while controlling for outcome pretest). At a 6-month follow-up, students who participated in the program outperformed the comparison group on social studies grades and social studies passing rates. However, the evaluation also found that the comparison group outperformed students who participated in the program on math grades, English language arts grades (ELA), and ELA passing rates.
