  1. Looping is shown to have statistically significant, positive state assessment outcomes†. For children, looping is associated with improved student attendance and behavior†. For teachers, looping is associated with improved retention, increased instructional time, and greater job satisfaction†.
  2. Looping fellows enthusiastically commit to teaching a substantially similar cohort in the next grade level (80% or more of students must be the same year-to-year to complete fellowship).
  3. Looping fellows receive a letter of recommendation and commitment from the administrator who makes staffing decisions at their school to loop to the next grade with a substantially similar cohort.
  4. Looping fellows meet once per month via video conference to communicate breakthroughs and challenges that arise from looping with other fellows. Looping fellows share two-year, anonymized student, longitudinal data with the Loop 13 organization to further enhance the dataset for how looping impacts students.
  5. Looping teachers earn a $1,000 stipend for their efforts upon successful completion of the fellowship.
