MEET WITH A SCHOOL’S SPECIAL NEEDS DIRECTOR
If you have a child with an active Individualized Education Program (IEP), consider communicating with the district’s Special Education Director to identify where services that your child may use are provided. Even schools in close proximity to one another can vary significantly in the availability of special education services. District staff can provide the most complete picture of their offerings and locations. A copy of your child’s current IEP provides the receiving district with facts about your child’s current services and your expectations. This can expedite continued support for your child upon arrival, especially for mid-year transitions. Bases also offer supports through the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP). Be sure to reach out to the EFMP Coordinator at your new base before moving to get connected.
