Educational Resources for Children

Because every school is different.  Because every district, state, and country has a slightly or grossly different curriculum.  Because we move a lot and education matters.  Because every little bit of help – helps tremendously.  Because these resources are free for you and available now.  It’s worth checking out.  
1.  The Military Child Education Coalition has created a checklist for transferring students to assist families in compiling education records for their students.
2.  SchoolMatters is a service of Standard & Poors to search for information on public schools (for returning back to the US).  One can research schools by name and location.
3.  March 2 Success is an online test preparation course that will provide help with taking standardized tests, and improve math and English skills.  It is a free program developed by the Army to help prepare students for assessment exams, college entrance exams, trade school entrance tests, military entrance tests and applying for a job.

4.  The Defense Department has launched a free, online tutoring service for service members and their families. The site –  — offers round-the-clock professional tutors who can assist with homework, studying, test preparation, resume writing and more.  Amazing – your child can get help with a real tutor live online.  For your login/password, go to you base library or send an email to:

                      - Draw on the Interactive Whiteboard
                      - Studying

                      - Every subject they tutor is open all the time, every day. You can get a tutor whenever you want, from anywhere in the world.

 5.  This is the one to do before a move.  Student Online Achievement Resources at www.soarathome.orgStudents take an assessment aligned to state standards and SOAR directs them to individualized tutorials to improve skills where needed.  Parents can monitor their children’s progress and are provided with resource materials.

6. – a good overall site with many links for other resources that may be helpful.
