New Mexico Public Education Department

Students at risk of frequent school transfers in the New Mexico Public Education system have lower attendance rates, lower school achievement and delayed literacy skills, and higher dropout rates. The New Mexico Department of Public Education (NM PED) is interested in addressing the causes of high mobility and frequent school transfers, such as housing insecurity or migration. In the proposed intervention, NM PED will connect highly mobile students with non-academic case managers to support students with housing stability resources, and provide cash transfers to students’ families for economic assistance, in hopes of improving academic outcomes of highly mobile students.
