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.
