    yes sanjana,
    i think so too. people move around all the time and getting into schools isnt that tough.
    check with your home school , depending on your location , like lochu mentioned.
    Good luck with the relocation .

    The academic year in the US runs from Sept to May. But schools do have transfer students coming in the middle of school year all the time. Like others have said, if you know where you will be, it is a good idea to find out what school district you will fall into. Go to that district, send an email to the principal/administrative office asking all the details and explaining your situation. They will be sure to answer you and in worst case direct you to the right contact. It is a good idea to talk now.

    Else you can complete her 2nd grade in India by mar/april, relocate in May and then enrol for 3rd grade. The child will have a little time to adapt to the new environment - of course this is purely my personal opinion and I am giving it with out you asking for it. Hope you do not mind.

    In either case, I would like to suggest to start talking with the school - a clearer picture will emerge.
