Transitioning with an Exceptional Family Member
  • Request a copy of child’s complete educational records. Be sure you have a copy of the child’s latest Individualized Educational Program (IEP).
  • Obtain a copy of all assessment information and medical records used by local school to plan for child’s special needs.
  • Meet with child’s teacher and review the progress that child has made since the last IEP was developed. Ask for any suggestions that may help you and the staff at the new school plan a program for your child.
  • Write the director of special education for the state to which you are going for a copy of the special education guidelines and policies. Get in touch with the director of special education in the local school system. Give the name of your child that is transferring and current educational placement, and ask what might be done before the transfer is made to the new area. If you are going overseas, the appropriate DoDDS special education regional coordinator should receive information to facilitate your child’s placement throughout the military or civilian EFMP coordination process.
  • Contact the Parent Training and Information Center in the new state.
  • Take any special equipment, medication refills, or supplies which your child may need in the next two months.
  • Hand carry all information on your child’s educational program to the new duty station.
  • Upon arriving at your new duty station, make an appointment to meet with the local director of special education or DoDDS principal and visit the installation EFMP manager.
