College/University Entrance Support

Programs that provide information and guidance for high school students and others who are preparing for or in the process of choosing and applying for admission to a college, university or other postsecondary institution. Assistance may include information about various college/university programs and their requirements, advice on college/university selection, suggestions regarding high school classes students should take to best qualify for the school of their choice, information and counseling regarding financial aid, assistance in completing necessary application forms and supporting materials such as application essays, and advice regarding the scheduling of SATs/ACTs. The objective of most college/university entrance support programs is to help students select the most appropriate institution and present their credentials in a way that heightens their chances of having their application accepted. Included are programs that sponsor fairs where representatives from a broad range of postsecondary institutions are available to meet with prospective students and discuss course offerings, admission and financial aid requirements, college/university life in general and other information that is pertinent to the selection process.

Military Student Transition Assistance

Programs that provide assistance for military-connected students in grades K-12 that help them cope with the challenges of moving and adjusting to a new school while meeting their academic and personal-social goals. With each new move, military children must cope with the stress of making new friends and leaving others behind, adapting to a new school environment at awkward times and figuring out how to fit in while trying to maintain a reasonable level of academic success. Transition consultants work directly with students and their parents to help them feel engaged in the school district, but also educate teachers and school personnel about issues unique to their military students. They address both school and deployment related concerns, and have provided assistance with transfer of credit, state-to-state testing requirements, magnet programs, transportation guidelines and school policies.

School Placement Services

Programs that maintain lists of elementary and secondary schools and provide assistance for prospective students who need help in selecting an educational facility that is appropriate for their individual needs and interests. Included are programs that provide lists of available schools as well as those that help parents and students evaluate their options and make a choice.

Truancy Counseling

Programs that work with children and adolescents of compulsory school age who are habitually absent from class without permission to encourage them to improve their attendance and complete their education.
