Course Focuses on Helping Military Children Through School Transitions

Parents, professionals and interested adults in Buellton are invited to participate in a free two-day interactive course through the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC).

The course — Supporting Military Children through School Transitions: Foundations™ — creates an environment for education, installation and community professionals to have access to professional networks, technologies, resources and support systems available to military and veteran-connected youth.

Anyone concerned about the welfare of military kids is invited to enroll in the face-to-face course, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 at Santa Ynez Valley Marriott, 555 McMurray Road, Buellton. Participants also are eligible to earn continuing education units. The course is sponsored by the U.S. Air Force.

The course helps professionals stay up to date on the dynamic and diverse K-12 school experience that impacts transitioning students. Some of the modules addressed include: military lifestyle and culture, school transition perspectives, and identifying local transition challenges.

MCEC is an accredited Authorized Provider by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training. MCEC is also a National Board for Certified Counselors Approved Continuing Education provider (ACEP™) and may offer NBCC-approved clock hours for events that meet NBCC requirements.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
