HCPSS respects and sympathizes with the anxiety and uncertainty experienced during this time. We ensure every student will receive transition supports if they are reassigned to another school. We also can ensure students will continue to have access to excellent educators and supports so they continue thriving at a new school.
School staff are prepared to assist as students transition from one school to another, usually during the transition from elementary to middle and middle to high, and also when transitioning occurs between schools at the same level. In these cases, the receiving schools send teams of staff members and students to the sending schools to hold orientations for students. Orientations for parents are also held as well as student visits to the receiving schools. In addition, the teachers at the sending and receiving schools hold articulation meetings to discuss instruction, goals, and individualized student needs.
