Transition from Elementary to Middle School

Moving from elementary to middle school may mean a new building, a new schedule, new teachers and new classmates. Many children may also be maturing physically, facing new responsibilities at home and hard course work at school. Transitioning to middle school can be made easier with preparation.  Transition planning can also be part of an IEP, outlining an annual goal and specific responsibilities of team members and timelines.
