Relocating to or From Cumberland County

    • Each time military families move, their students encounter different curriculum or standards, different ways of measuring progress, different reports to learn to read, and even different definitions of highly-qualified teachers. The Common Core Standards will alleviate this disparity, but regardless, these tips will make it easier to transfer schools.
