Lone Star District Transitional Troop Needs Assessment
The Lone Star District is currently seeking your input to determine if there is a need for a Transitional Troop in our area. Scouts BSA is committed to serving all youth regardless of physical or mental capabilities or impairments. A Transitional Troop would provide additional support to Scouts who may not be ready to move directly into a traditional Scouting unit. Examples of Scouts who may benefit from a Transitional Troop include 1) Scouts crossing over from Cub Scouts who may not be ready to move directly into a traditional unit, and 2) Scouts with disabilities who may not be ready to move directly into a traditional unit.

The purpose of this survey is to gather input and feedback from Units to determine the level of need for a Transitional Troop and estimate the number of Scouts who may benefit from a Transitional Troop. The survey should only take 3-5 minutes to complete. Individual responses are anonymous and all survey results will be reported in aggregate. A similar survey is being developed for local teachers, community groups, and parents. Results of this survey will be combined with the other survey results.
