What existing policies and practices support positive transitions in your school?

  • Collect information from all stakeholders (administrators, board members, parents, students, counselors, teachers and members of staff, human resource managers, admissions directors) outlining your school community's existing policies and practices supporting positive transitions for each group below.

  • Create a Transitions Team (or call it whatever fits best for your school community) preferably including members from each stakeholder group.

  • Celebrate what is already in place, you likely have more happening at your school than you think.

  • Connect with SPAN on ideas for enhancing positive transitions-care in your school community. Email us at admin@spanschools.org.

Our goal is to help ourselves and others manage the stress, distress and chaos of transition, so we can get on with learning, loving, growing, stretching, cross-cultural competence and joy: all the things we launched into the international world to do wisely and well.
