AbstractThis study researched the impact of parental shiftwork schedules on the performance, behavior, and development of middle-school students as seen through the eyes of their teachers. Located in a company-owned town in southeastern Arizona, the study focused on the experiences of middle-school teachers by asking them to consider and reflect on their observations of middle-school students in terms of the shiftwork schedule their parents worked. The teachers were also asked to respond to questions regarding what they had done in their own classrooms and what school leaders could do to lessen these impacts. By analyzing their responses, conclusions may be drawn as to the extent of these impacts, their variability and scope, and their implications for school leaders.
