Involuntary Transfer (Not Recommended) — A Strategy Brief

from University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Involuntary transfer is a school disciplinary option to relocate a student from their current school to a different school as a consequence for reoccurring inappropriate behavior (Alexander, Entwisle, & Dauber, 1996; Bowditch, 1993; Jason et al., 1993). School districts may use different terminology to describe involuntary transfer such as “administrative transfer” or “reassignment.” Research indicates that a significant amount of stress is placed on a student when he or she transfers schools. This stress has the ability to negatively affect the student academically and emotionally. Consequently, the problem behavior is never directly addressed and is carried to the subsequent school. Involuntary transfer is not recommended due to the lack of behavioral correction and the amount of stress it puts on the student.
