Although the following will eventually be sent to Pequea Valley upon official request, information from your learner's previous school, past academic records, report cards, IEP's, 504's, etc., are very helpful for a smooth, timely and correct transition.
Please be aware that the providing of a transcript and recent report card will be extremely helpful for learners in 7-12th grade.
