A recent EAB survey taken by 3,000+ educators reported an increase of disruptive behavior in early grades over the last three years. This data corroborates evidence from hundreds of EAB research interviews in which various educators pointed to kindergarten and first grade as the years with the most behavioral disruptions.

To address this issue, many districts are developing transition programs: Short summer camps that focus on building the social-emotional skills of incoming kindergarteners and acclimating them to a structured educational setting.

The following guide details the key components districts and schools need to consider in order to create a high-quality, successful transition program.
