This partnership project between UNLV and Clark County School District’s Student Support Services Division (SSSD) focuses on identifying risk and protective factors leading to student disaffection and placement in alternative education. Alternative education students are primarily male, with an overrepresentation of minority and special education designations, and who face increased odds of school drop-out. This project will use a mixed-methods approach to chart student trajectories toward alternative education and explore student educational experiences through a motivational and emotional lens. The partnership should result in increased potential for data-driven decision making by SSSD staff and scholarship opportunities for UNLV.
