Abstract

Through teacher interviews, this study explores how teachers conceptualize their role in helping students at specialty schools be more successful than they would otherwise be in traditional schools. The results indicate that teachers view the constructed school community as being essential to boosting student engagement, and consequently, student achievement at their schools.
