Permanent Change of Station (PCS) moves with kids come with their own layers of challenges, not the least of which is switching schools. For military parents who do not homeschool, each move is met with the task of finding a new school, shifting school records and meeting the teachers and staff. Many parents also face the additional challenge of dealing with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or gifted and special education programs. And for the parents with high schoolers nearing graduation, things are even more complicated.
In this episode of PCS with Military.com, education advocate and expert Meg Flanagan walks us through things every parent needs to know and gives us insights on how the Military Interstate Children’s Compact Commission (MIC3) can help military parents tackle this tough PCS-related topic.
