News & Updates
Welcome to all NEW Military-Connected Students and Families!
We are thrilled that you will be a part of the SCUC-ISD family! We have many systems in place to support you!
At the secondary level, grades 7-12, as a part of a five year US Department of Defense Education Activity grant, we have two full-time military student transition consultants (MSTC) who are assigned to the junior high schools and high schools. They are here to help guide you in your new school surrounding, assist you in whatever you may need and also connect you with other students. If you are moving on from SCUC-ISD, our MSTCs can assist you in getting current information and contacts at your new school. Read more about our grant on this page!
If you are in grades K-6 keep your eyes and ears open for information about WE SERVE TOO Clubs! Several of our elementary schools have this in place and SOON ALL of our elementary and intermediate schools will have it in place thanks to a $25,000 grant from NOVO Education/Rockefeller Foundation. This is a fun and active club that will also have a community service project this year. Parents if you are interested in supporting your campus' WE SERVE TOO club, please contact your campus school counselor! We are also looking for squardons or units who would like to sponsor campus WE SERVE TOO clubs!
