Military-connected students move frequently, changing schools as many as nine times from preschool to high school graduation. With each move, they adjust to a different curriculum, meet new teachers and coaches, adapt to a new learning environment, and develop new friendships--all amid other military life challenges, such as a parent's deployment.
Seasons of My Military Student helps parents and teachers:
-- Understand the Seasons of Transition(TM) and the storms of military life that impact a student's education
-- Employ key provisions of the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children
-- Create an effective portable Seasons Education Binder
-- Work together as a team to support a student from grade to grade and school to school
