Change of duty stations and your student

Spring is here and that means that the summer Permanent Change of Station (PCS) is almost here. A PCS move can be challenging and we want to ensure you are ready.

Do you know what you need to make the transition as smooth as possible for your student? The last day of school is May 24. Silver Valley Unified School District understands the needs of our military Families and has planned the early withdrawal date, May 10, into the calendar without effecting attendance and advancement to the next grade. Schools need to be notified at least five days prior to withdrawal date, but two weeks is preferable. Remember, all textbooks and library books must be returned, lunch fees paid, and all medication picked up from the nurses office. Do not pack your student’s textbooks with your household goods. You will be accountable for them and it can be costly.

The school will provide an unofficial withdrawal packet that will include the student’s shot record, birth certificate, grades as of that date, and any IEPs. The gaining school will request official transcripts when you register. Remember to keep all school phone numbers and addresses in case you need to ask questions after the move. The School Liaison Office works closely with schools to help ensure that this is made possible.
