Looping is when a teacher and class stay together for two or more consecutive years; a teacher with a class of first graders would be the teacher with the same set of children for the second grade year. Looping is a practice that dates back to times of the one room school house and is seldom continued to be implemented in schools around the world when it has several benefits. It can build strong relationships between the teacher, student and parent, provide more instructional time, increase student’s self-efficacy, and make support available for students that need extra assistance or those in need of more challenging experiences. Teacher and parents of the Genesee Community Charter School, GCCS, completed a survey to show what there perspectives of looping are. The survey results correspond with earlier research, although the GCCS uses other practices that may draw similar conclusion of success in the classroom.
