I have a couple of questions regarding moving with an IEP. This will be a military move from one state to waaaay across the US (not sure if state to state matters more then within state moves). Also, DS2's IEP is up for renewal next month and the meeting has just been scheduled for Feb. 4.
Is there any need to mention that we will be moving? The move is anticipated in August. Both school districts (here and the new state) start school around the same time and I am not exactly sure which school he will start kindergarten in (here or in the new state). My gut says he would start maybe the first 2 weeks of kindergarten here and then it will take a week to get to where we are going and then start the new school.
Has anyone moved to a new state with an IEP and how smooth was the transition? What do I expect and how does it work? FWIW, in case it matters, DS2 would not be at a DODEA school. He will attend a public school no matter what (at the new state's location the actual schools on base are public schools which I had never heard of happening before).
The new state, as I have been told by the EFMP office, has limited therapies (school and private therapies) locally but they have approved us which means that base feels they can support DS2's needs. I am a little nervous about that but figure I will do what research I can now and then deal with whatever I can get once we are there. Out of the options we had (involving DH's military career) this new base was our best option and I want to make the best of it.
