Building Capacity and Welcoming Practices In Military-Connected Schools

Eagle's Nest

This video showcases Hancock school as an example of a parent run transition group. This is important to military connected children because it allows a safe and open place to explore and adapt without fear of feeling excluded. Parents connect with other parents that have already gone through the experience of adapting to this school and they then pay it forward when new families come to the schools. This resource in the school is another simple and effective way that schools can help close the social and academic gap.
