A second report, Mitigating the Impact of School Mobility: An Effective Practices Model and Guide for Educators, combines the research from the first report with stakeholder feedback to create a MODEL for student transition, along with a TOOLKIT of strategies, templates, and checklists — practical tools — developed to help teachers, principals, counselors, and district and state personnel more effectively serve transitioning mobile students. 

Each of the tools in the toolkit is detailed in brief 2-3 minutes videos, designed to assist school leaders in integrating them into their school environments.

This project was conducted over two years and funded through a grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
