Researchers over the past three decades have found that students experience a variety of challenges when transitioning from eighth to ninth grade. The challenges include decreases in grades, attendance, and self-esteem. However, there is little research regarding the transition to ninth grade for students with disabilities. This study was an archival review that examined the change in grade point average between eighth and tenth grade for students with disabilities and students in general education. The data indicated that regardless of educational classification, students experienced a decline in grade point from eighth to ninth grade that was almost fully overcome by tenth grade. No significant interactions were found between educational classification and semester grade point average or between semester grade point average and time of special education identification.
