How Can SchoolQuest Assist With Your Transition?
09/17/2015 Published by: Amy Soupene
Transition is defined by the act of change. Change of location, change of routine, change of school, in short, any kind of change qualifies as transition. Some changes are huge and others seem more manageable.
However, for the individual undergoing the transition, it does not happen without notice.
Change is a constant denominator in military life. Obviously, PCSing is common and is the first thing that comes to mind. There are many more changes, however, that appear much more subtle, but are no less impactful.
Some Military Life Transitions:
- Starting a new school and being the new kid.....again
- Change of the family dynamics because one or both parents are deployed
- Change of family interaction because the military member returns injured, or worse, doesn’t return at all
The Military Child Education Coalition knows first-hand all these changes and challenges military families face. And we want to support, advocate for, and assist these families. In response, the MCEC has created many programs and professional development courses to address topics that are distinctly felt by military families.
SchoolQuest was created by the MCEC to be an online resource for military families in transition. Our goal is to be informative and helpful. If you send a question, we will do our best to answer it in a timely manner.
