There is a wealth of information intended to assist the military family. Checklist for Transitioning Students SchoolQuest provides many resources for parents and educators. One set that is invaluable is the Transitioning Student list. This includes a checklist for Student Transitioning, Students with Disabilities, Gifted, and English Language Learners. Parents will be able to use the checklists to help have discussions with incoming and outgoing schools. This may help reduce the lack of services and participation due to slow delivery of paperwork.
