There are nearly 60 public schools — elementary, middle, high and alternative — in the Muscogee County School District. And if you’re a military student moving to the area, Darlene Register can help place you in the right one.

Part of a pilot program started this school year, Register is the new military student transition consultant for the district. She helps military families PCSing to Fort Benning get everything they need to have their children enrolled in the right school.

That can mean explaining the details of the different magnet programs available or finding an appropriate placement for a special needs child, Register said.

“I am here to do whatever I can to help the military families transition to Columbus or transition out of Columbus,” she said. “If children are having any problems in school, I’m going to be working very closely with the counselors. When you say transition, it’s not just people who are new. We are transitioning through life … from elementary to middle, from middle to high, from high school to graduation. Life is transition.
