Parent Tips for Making Smooth Transitions with the Kids
07/09/2010 Published by: joan
Make the transition during your family's PCS easier on you and your child by taking the time to make some simple preparations. Know what tools you need for a successful, less stressful move when it comes to your child's education. Organize yourself by starting with a binder and a transition list. To begin, contact the current district at least six weeks before the move to request copies of your child's school records. Research districts near the new duty station to decide which schools offer similar programs or classes in which your child is currently enrolled (i.e., IB, AP, dual Credit, sports, etc.). Check the state's immunization requirements and make sure shot records are up to date. There are many more steps needed for a smooth move from one location to another. You will find more information and a detailed checklist for your move in the SchoolQuest.org™ Library.
