The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of an integrated student support intervention on student achievement and attendance. Previous studies of the intervention in a single school district have demonstrated significant positive impacts on various student outcomes, but the degree to which the intervention impact replicates in additional sites has not yet been analyzed. Specifically, we examine the impact of the intervention on attendance and math and English Language Arts achievement for third, fourth, and fifth graders across five schools that began implementing the intervention in a new site during the 2011/12 academic year. Our results support the replicability of the intervention’s positive impacts on student achievement and attendance.
